Last year, they transformed a wall at North Country Union High School in Newport with a Maya Angelou poem as part of their community residency series with schools. The collective has been visiting schools across the state for a two-week period and collaborating with students to create a mural. Eva caught up with the trio in Derby at North Country Union Junior High School on a sweltering Thursday, when they were in the first week of creating a mural. She interviewed the family and some of the students and spoke to Jayden, the reference model for a mythical being in the mural, about being one of a few students of color at the school and how it felt to be seen and represented on the wall.
