“Human Family” is a collection that honors the differences we carry in our physical existence in the world. The name is inspired by Maya Angelou’s poem of the same title, which notes our obvious differences as we all come from various backgrounds yet in essence we share the same desire for love, unity and peace. I was inspired by the 70’s “Soul Train”, a show where soul music from legends such as Aretha Franklin would play, while men and women alike, adorned in big afros and wide leg pants danced to the rhythm of their own beat.
