About the piece

This image is a collage of "We Stand, We Love, We Play, We Dance," which is a group of original images and music that I created from the inspiration of great African American musicians, artists, dancers, thinkers, and activists. They include Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington, Shirley Horn, Nina Simone, Nikki Giovanni, Miles Davis, Lena Horne, and James Baldwin, and more. These great minds have greatly influenced how I compose and perform music while also shaping the way I see through the lens. The images and music represent how African Americans have always used creativity to address issues of inequality. The sonic language of this project is drawn from the groundbreaking recording Kind of Blue by Miles Davis (1959) and from the rich musical tropes ranging from jazz and blues to the Black church and juke joints.
