I Am Because You Are

In I Am Because You Are Gherdai Hassell creates a deliberate, living relationship with historic materials, fusing past, present and future in a celebration of resilience.

In so doing, she gives a voice back to those who were silenced, reminding us that “Black people as the descendants of the slave trade exist more as a human accomplishment than the remains of human destruction.”

To accompany the exhibition, we have produced a free activity booklet for children age 10-14, which allows them to learn about Bermuda’s shared history in a way that they have never seen it before.
