Women of a New Tribe

The concept of ‘Women of a New Tribe’ developed from the belief that African Americans were a “new people born of an American experience of survival, struggle, and triumph.”  Jerry Taliaferro, photographer and creator of the ‘Women of New Tribe” exhibit says:

“Women of a New Tribe is a photographic celebration not just of the beauty of the Black American Woman, it is a celebration of the beauty that God gives to all women”

The exhibit premiered on June 14, 2002 in Charlotte, NC. It has traveled from city to city photographing local teachers, businesswomen, volunteers, activists, homemakers, wives, mothers, sisters, and daughters.
