Weaver Diedrick Brackens is best known for his woven tapestries that explore themes of African American and queer identity, American history, as well as his own lived experience. Influenced by African and African American literature, poetry, and folklore, Brackens imbues his weavings with a fantastical spirit, while poignantly bridging past and present.
