In May of 2016, I was hired by Alex Hary for The Colored Boy to photograph his panel event “Colored Boy and Friends: Mental Health Awareness Edition” at the Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz Memorial and Educational Center.
This literary showcase a conversation on series centered around mental health awareness, featuring filmmaker, playwright, and co-founder of The Each-Other Project, Donja R. Love; multimedia journalist Bené Viera; and audio producer, founder of Bondfire Radio, and co-host of TK in The AM, Keisha Dutes. Alex spoke with each guest about their awesome careers, current projects, their mental health journeys, and all sorts of stuff. World traveler, writer, and filmmaker Darnell Lamont Walker joined him for a cathartic rant moment called “Here’s What The Fuck I Think,”
