Mari and Maela by Leslie Barlow

Leslie Barlow ’16, MFA, is featured on the Black Midwest Initiative website, in company with other artists, filmmakers, and writers including Latoya Ruby Frazier.

As a platform, this new site's initiative is to highlight ongoing work people are doing—whether academic, creative, or organizational—that speaks to the experiences of black people living within the Midwest and the larger industrial sector of the United States.
