Self-Portraits From Black Photographers Reflecting on America


“I have been dreaming of a woman warrior. My full name is Delphine Diaw Diallo. ‘Diaw’ was the name of my Senegalese, Fulani grandmother, Diaw Gueye. She was a great matriarch and provided food and shelter for many children in her community in Saint Louis du Senegal. I recently had ‘this call’ of coming back to Senegal to create the woman’s armor and felt deeply my purpose to awaken the archetype of the female warrior.”
