FBT Black Immigrant Mural Series
Families Belong Together partnered with Black immigrant artists in Houston (TX), Long Island (NY), and Miami (FL) to create murals that celebrate Black immigrant families and illustrate that the journey to racial equity is far from over.
In Long Island, Haitian-American artist Marie E Saint-Cyr created a mural in Wyandanch focused on the growth of a Black woman, inspired by her immigration journey from Haiti to New York.
Chukwunonso Ofili, a Nigerian-American artist, painted a mural in Houston which highlights the potential paths a young Black girl can explore when she receives support from her family unit.
Jonathan Desrosiers, a Haitian-American artist, created a mural in Miami focused on the bond between a mother, father and their child to highlight the foundation of this relationship and the importance of keeping families together.
