A sense of community and brotherhood can sometimes be cultivated on college campuses through fraternities like Phi Beta Sigma. This connection fosters positive experiences, growth and love of self and others, that supports ongoing relationships way beyond the college years.

“All for one and one for all.”

Alexandre Dumas

Three young men are captured in a moment of bright levity. Despite their professional attire, their clothing and posture project a sense of personal vibrancy and fraternity. A strong sense of brotherhood permeates the scene, speaking to the lifelong bonds that arise in youth but carry their communities far into the future.

Ubuntu is a exhibition of the photography of Amir Leung-Tat. An interpretation of the Nguni term which means "I am because we are" and associated African philosophy which promotes the interconnectedness of humanity, Leung-Tat's work represents a poignant exploration of the vast totality of the black experience through the eyes of an artist coming of age. Shot during his time in Keyna, as well as during the 2020 Black Lives Matter demonstrations in Boston, MA, his work captures the enduring connections and similarities that override geographical differences. Despite the forced separation of Black bodies from their homeland, there is a vibrant energy and resolve to overcome obstacles and a singularity of spirit that remains connected across time and space.
