Collection 2

"American, Also. Lesson 2" named "Normal" we focused on telling stories of the common black family experience. We led the installation with a runway show at the historic Weeksville Heritage Center. Followed by runway shows in Shanghai & Lagos. We followed up with the Director X led film "Seven Mothers." A film that focuses on the family life of Kerby Jean-Raymond and the 7 women who raised him after his mother passed away in 1994.
