Black. Woman. Mama. Queen. Goddess. Lover of community. Dope ass photographer. The one and the only Melissa Alexander. Or Mel for short. I like Mel The Homosapien, but she might not...Welp. Nonetheless, she lends her heart to the streets where most only lend their ears. I remember viewing her short film From The Westside With Love and instantly feeling connected to her art. Before the pandemic, and throughout it, Mellisa has been an artistic Auntie to her community. Giving it a whole lotta love, tenderness, and care. Visit Mel's Instagram and website to see how she's successfully creating safe spaces for us to be naturally black and beautiful. Show her some love in return.
