Thee Nina Simone wrote My skin is black, My arms are long, My hair is woolly, My back is strong. “My Skin is Black” is a visual reflection inspired by those exact words. Those are what Monroe wanted to say in the mix of the pandemic, and the protest the summer of 2020. He wanted the black body to exist freely without worry. He wanted to see his community free without worry! Utilizing his NYC roof, Monroe was able to capture that message exactly!
