Shugabanni by W. Michelle Harris features four mosaic video portraits of just a few of the Black women of Rochester who shape this place into a community: Melanie Funchess, Terry Chaka, Javannah Davis, and Tonya Noel. The mosaic tiles are portraits of Black women, including Anna Murray Douglass, Elizabeth Freeman, Frances Watkins Harper, Mary Mahoney, Mary Peake, and Harriet Tubman, plus many more. Watch these incredible portraits come to life at RoCo this First Friday!
