Solace in Three Parts
Part 1: Shanghai at Sunset
Solace is a project that looks into the relationships Brown and Black women form. In the above series, the two had met in Shanghai, China. As minorities in their program and lab partners in their research group, they quickly becoming good friends even though they were only together for 6 weeks. The laughs were endless!
Part 02: Sista, Sista
This part of Solace explores Sisterhood. These two are my favorite sisters! Nigerian-American and close in age, their energies are intertwined. Light radiates between the two sisters. As each other’s support system, especially because they are far from home and double minorities at a PWI, both sisters look out for each other, sharing similar interests and aesthetics, trading make-up and modeling tips, and going out together. They are a powerful and iconic duo.
Part 03: Black Girls in Boston
The loves of my life! These two were incoming freshman that attended a program for minorities in Engineering that I mentored. As the few black girls in the program, they quickly gravitated towards each other. They have been inseparable ever since! Both feeding off of each other’s aesthetic, studying together, partying together, venting together. It has been beautiful seeing their bond deepen and strengthen as their time in college progresses. I am always rooting for them.
