This unique photography exhibit works with local photographer Fatah Muse to interview and photograph young Somali women, and showcases their individual stories within the larger narrative of community. It explores the role that these women play in the community addressing topics such as dress, religion, tradition and family. Through the presentation of images and stories, the goal of this exhibit is to dispel stereotypes and misunderstandings about this group of remarkable women, to highlight their contributions to the community, and to get to know the Somali community through their eyes.
This exhibit is presented in partnership with Somali Women and Children's Alliance and the Somali Cultural and Research Institute and the 2012-2013 Columbus-Athens Schweitzer Fellowship Program.
