My Last American Dollar, asks about resistance in the framework of five spaces: locker rooms, strip clubs, waiting rooms, church pews, and field days (military exercises/school athletics). Consisting of two rounds, the project investigates forms in which black and brown people hold space for each other. How do you carry the multiplicities of being young, gifted, and black?

Keijaun Thomas is a New York based artist and current Franklin Furnace Fund Recipient. Their work investigates the histories, symbols, and images that construct notions of Black identity within Black personhood.
