A conversation with photographer and activist Brittani Sensabaugh about “the power of melanin” and her 222 Movement. She talks about using photography to document and celebrate an oppressed culture, mixing art and activism, and teaching young people not just creative skills but psychological strength. Brittani lives in Oakland, California, and travels to cities around the country documenting “communities that have been forgotten and people who feel they have no voice.” In the past year she has had solo exhibitions on both coasts. Her work has been covered by the PBS Newshour, Teen Vogue, and nearly every major Bay Area periodical.
