About #RM2B: Do we give ourselves room to be ourselves? Or do we allow societal structures to solely shape how we navigate and exist in the world today? Using W.E.B DuBois work as a template, these six women explore how the concepts of “to be the problem” and “to live in privilege” collide, survive and thrive physically and linguistically in everyday life.
#RM2B was performed at the Souls of Black Folks Bridal Salon program at the Painted Bride Art Center on Tuesday, May 19th. TS took one of the still photos I shot, by overlaying text from #RM2B on it, creating a very clean yet impactful marketing and promotion piece that both of can use.
This is what creative collaboration looks like.
