Nina Simone penned the words, "My skin is black, my arms are long, my hair is woolly, my back is strong..." Inspired by these powerful sentiment, "My Skin is Black" serves as a visual reflection. Amid the pandemic and the George Floyd protests of summer 2020, Monroe aimed to express these very thoughts. He envisioned a world where the Black body could exist freely, without fear, and his community could thrive without worry. Using his NYC rooftop as a backdrop when studios were closed due to COVID-19, Monroe succeeded in conveying this message perfectly.
