WEINDE is an iteration of Afro Diaries. It is a mixed-media collage series of photography reflective of African emancipation, flight, futuristic cities, travel, and spirituality.

Afro Diaries is a collection of work by, for, and about women of color. It offers a window into the miscarriages women endure. The work reflects and refracts the critical issues of identity, cultural differences, and human rights, while drawing from myriad issues and concerns that create conflict and inequality in society. Grace and Graffiti is a well-being and humanities landscape for interdisciplinary arts and consulting.
