Guest photographer for the Photographic Nights of Selma 2021
Kaci Merriwether-Hawkins is a 23 year-old photographer and director from Columbia, SC. She is an alumna of Tuskegee University, where she fell in love with the art of photography. While in Tuskegee, she created “My Lens is Black”, a collection of visuals intended to champion and highlight the black, southern experience. Her work is a reflection of the love that she feels for her community, as well as the confidence she always desired as a little girl growing up as a darker-skinned, coarse-haired woman in the south. Her
mission is to transfer that confidence from her visuals to little black girls and boys all around the world.
