Every year, March 1 marks the start of Women’s History Month and the end of Black History Month.

But the East New York artist melissa sutherland moss is using her brilliant collage art to highlight the intersection, where black femininity can be celebrated and honored.

Her latest multimedia collage series “First Lady,” premiering this weekend, showcases Black women and their storied stories of triumph, including portraits of Maya Angelou, Eartha Kitt, Shirley Chisholm, Nina Simone, Rosa Parks, family members, and plus.

“Looking at the pile of clippings made me think about my identity, my culture, where I come from and what jewelry means in black culture,” said Sutherland Moss.

“Even in hip-hop culture, jewelry means something: it’s status, wealth and royalty. And my mom used to wear a lot of jewelry too.”
