    BLM Raised fist salute, origins & manifestations - Guest, Barack Obama's Presidential Campaign Artist, Nicola Green

    BLM Raised fist salute, origins & manifestations - Guest, Barack Obama's Presidential Campaign Artist, Nicola Green

    In this episode I take you through the origins and manifestations of the raised fist salute, which has more recently been associated with the BLM movement. We move on to my conversation with Nicola Green, the artist behind the work ‘In Seven Days’ - a series created from her unprecedented artistic access to Barack Obama’s 2008 Presidential campaign trial.


    Nicola Green is renowned for gaining access to iconic personalities from the worlds of politics, religion, and culture, including collaborations with Pope Francis and the Dalai Lama. In 2008 Nicola Green gained artistic access to Obama’s Presidential campaign. She had a front row seat to historic events: from Obama’s DNC nomination speech to Inauguration, Nicola was behind-the-scenes taking photographs, making sketches, and having conversations with press, staff and citizens. I spoke with Nicola about the process of creating this series, and she shares how her own multi race and faith family influences her work.
    Inspired by her own mixed-heritage and multi-faith family, she creates and preserves religious, social, and cultural heritage for future generations. Recording these events as they happen, and investing thousands of hours of academic and artistic research, she builds and curates substantial archives. In Seven Days is in the permanent collections of the National Portrait Gallery - The Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; The Library of Congress, Washington D.C; and in both the International Slavery Museum and The Walker Art Gallery, in Liverpool

    LEGACY with guest photographer Andre D. Wagner

    LEGACY with guest photographer Andre D. Wagner

    With Guest Photographer Andre D Wagner
    Gordon Parks’ work was shared widely during the 2020 BLM protests, perhaps to share comfort, solace and act as a collective creative marker acknowledging that our civil justice work continues. My guest Andre shares the impact of Parks’ work on his own photography, his experiences of the protests, plus his working practice & life as a street photographer 
    It's such a beautiful episode. Thank you Andre for the conversation
    Andre D. Wagner is a photographer living and working in Brooklyn, New York. He explores and chronicles the poetic and lyrical nuances of daily life, using city streets, neighborhoods, parades, public transportation and the youth of the twenty first century as his visual language. His work and practice fits into the lineage of street photography that investigates the American social landscape, often focusing his lens on themes of race, class, cultural identity and community. He develops his own black and white negatives and makes silver gelatin prints in his personal darkroom. 
    His photographs have been commissioned by The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Cut, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, WSJ, Time Magazine and Vogue, among other publications. For the movie Queen & Slim Andre photographed the key art and the campaigns leading images. His photographs have appeared in a number of solo exhibitions and group shows in Los Angeles, New York and North Carolina. His first monograph, Here For the Ride, was published by Creative Future in 2017. He is currently editing a 7-year-old body of work titled New City, Old Blues, to be published soon

    SOCIAL MEDIA ALLYSHIP with Guest Sophie Williams. Author 'Anti Racist Ally' & 'Millennial Black'

    SOCIAL MEDIA ALLYSHIP with Guest Sophie Williams. Author 'Anti Racist Ally' & 'Millennial Black'

    Guest Sophie Williams
    Author Anti Racist Ally & Millennial Black


    Sophie had a career in advertising, before she left to create her own business, working with clients such as Netflix on projects combining her professional advertising experience with active anti-racism work. 


    In the summer of 2020, Sophie posted 10 slides to Instagram outlining how to be an anti-racist ally. Her slides, which were created in response to those outside the Black community wanting to help and be allies, went viral. 


    We talk about how our visual culture and the language we use, is a powerful tool in communicating to those outside our own social groups.
    Sophie also shares the stats on why Black & brown women are being expelled from workplaces due to discrimination. We are the most entrepreneurial group, why? Because we have to carve out our own work spaces. Sophie shares the evidence
