About the Artist: Faye admits that besides art, her other passions are history and social justice and for more than 20 years she has created activism photomontages. One of her favorite quotes happens to be by novelist Paul Robeson, “Artists are the gatekeepers of truth, we are civilization’s radical voice.”
She is a 5th generation Missourian, born and raised in Hannibal, MO, a child of the 60’s. She participated in her first protest as a 12-year-old and continues to remain engaged to this day. She takes great pride in her humble beginning as a Douglasville kid (Hannibal’s oldest all-Black community). Faye has a B.S. in Sociology/Psychology from Oakland University and a Masters Degree from the University of Michigan.
Driven by the need for social justice, Ms. Dant founded Northeast Missouri’s only Black History Museum, Jim’s Journey: The Huck Finn Freedom Center. It is the country’s only museum to pay tribute to Daniel Quarles, a.k.a. Jim of literary fame. Striving to overcome the sense of invisibility, she often uses images of local residents in her art pieces.
