Hannah Mayree (She/Her)
Hannah Mayree is a  creative facilitator and musician who’s work and art lends itself as a tool for redesigning and reconnecting to our roots as humans on this planet. A banjoist, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Hannah shares harmonies through acoustic live vocal looping and reminds us of the empowerment found in our relationship to the earth, music and community. She is the co-founder and a director of the Black Banjo Reclamation Project. The Black Banjo Reclamation Project is a cultural and land- based revival project that centers the Black community by reclaiming ancestral wisdom and moving forward with innovations through perspectives of Afro-futurism. Through our extensive network across the country, our work promotes conversation and action in healing the ancestral, historical, cultural and racially dividing wounds in this country and the world.

Avé-Ameenah (She/Her)
Multidisciplinary artist Avé-Ameenah Long uses her art as a way to inspire Black people, across the diaspora. Centering photography and cinematography, Avé-Ameenah prioritizes these skills to document not only her local Black community, but also to engage with Black folks in her travels around the world. The creator of the Keep it Diasporic project, her first photographic journey brought her to the African rooted city of Cartagena, Colombia and the island of Bastimentos, Panamá. There, she was influenced to document her experience and return the knowledge she gained, back to her hometown community of Oakland. Avé-Ameenah hopes that her continued art practices can excite Black people everywhere to creatively explore their identity and bring better awareness to our collective ancestral journey.
