Text on the artwork: "You Black Americans think you have it bad. In Nigeria, EVERY time I leave my house, I have to take money to bribe police so I won't go to jail if I get pulled over." This is an autobiographical artwork inspired by a conversation between the artist and "Kenny," an Igbo Nigerian who around 1999, was one of her first African-born friends.
