Love is the most powerful emotion of the human experience. By experience, love is abundant, but by explanation, love becomes unexplainable, yet, understood.
What Is Left Unspoken, Love is a new, thematic exhibition curated by The High Museum of Art Atlanta that features nearly seventy contemporary artworks that examines the multitude of ways to express love. This latest installation explores Love’s nuance through self, community, romance, spirit, friendship and family.
Recognizing those who paved the way for African American journalists.
Through decades of sharing truths and informing the public, black journalists have only been able to spread knowledge mainstream in the late 20th century. As a journalist from The South, it’s imperative that I reflect and pay homage to my professional predecessors, because without them, I would not stand where I am today.

Virgil Abloh opened his latest installment of his “Figures of Speech” exhibit at The High Museum of Art Atlanta in November 2019. Although I feel that the majority of the flock attended for the limited edition merchandise, the exhibit served the public dynamic approaches to the artist’s current views of social society.
Heavily influenced by Virgil’s fashion, design, and music, Figures of Speech gave viewers a peek into his successful creative spectrum that is HE and OFF-White.
In honor of Virgil’s death on November 28th from a rare form of cancer, I created a video review of the exhibit when I was invited to the media preview that was available before the public.
