These photos are part of a larger project (I hope) that deals with Greek gods and goddesses and incorporates black bodies into their stories. The first one (the one featured) is the goddess Hera, who was known as the goddess of marriage and birth. She is also linked to Peacocks, which is why they are featured in the photos. I wanted to fuse together classical and contemporary photography with this project, and I hope the three photos can illustrate some of that.

Welcome to the second installment of “Black Girl Magic”. This week’s Magician of the Week is political science freshman, Muslim Student Association Sister’s Coordinator and ITA Digital Media Assistant Fatoumata Ceesay. Her magic is her personal exploration of intersecting African and black identities. Her campus involvement centers on developing community and building bridges with the various multicultural groups on this campus. Listen to her thoughts regarding what the discrepancies between those who identify as black, African and African-American can be and how she identifies herself.
