This issue is dedicated to Mama Barbara Nayo Malcolm Watkins, life-long arts activist, who defined herself as a “movement worker”. Mama Nayo used art to make change happen in communities all over the south.
Mama Nayo served with groups such as Alternate Roots, SpiritHouse, and the Highlander Center.
She founded the Myeke Center in Durham, NC to address proactive approaches to teaching children with learning differences.
