Green states, “This two-person exhibition will display an exciting array of portraits and cultural references to the African diaspora while firmly having roots in New Orleans African American culture.

It weaves together research on cultures from the African diaspora such as the Regla de Ocha, Yoruba, and Creole heritage."
