Niama Safia Sandy

Niama Safia Sandy is a cultural anthropologist, curator, and essayist. She sees her role as that of an agitator; one who endeavors to simultaneously call into question and make sense of the seemingly arbitrary nature of modern life, while developing critical and creative modalities grounded in histories of the Black Diaspora. She recently curated Black Magic: AfroPasts/AfroFutures, on view at Honfluer Gallery, D.C., and her writing is included in the forthcoming inaugural journal Mfon: Women Photographers of the African Diaspora. Curatorial projects include The Circle of Trust at BLDG 92, Brooklyn, and Boundless at Brooklyn Historical Society. Niama received an M.A. in Anthropology from School of Oriental and African Studies, London, and a B.A. in Journalism with a minor in Caribbean Studies from Howard University, D.C.
