The Icon

I can’t possibly pinpoint one person who stands as my icon, but I find the sheer power and beauty that’s found withing and around Black women to be truly otherworldly. To me, all Black women thriving and surviving in this world are true icons. – Campbell Addy

My current icon is the urban designer Emmanual Prat, cofounder of Sweet Water Foundation, who has helped to transform some vacant lots on Chicago South Side into a vibrant small neighborhood with an urban farm, a gallery and collective educational and meeting places.
