They too are stewards of the environment, farmers, gardeners, explorers, creatives, intellectual souls, and individuals striving to evolve spiritually. Inspired by their own lifestyles, Brown Bohemians showcases what they have personally and spiritually experienced as creative people of color. Each of their stories are unique yet add to the collective narratives of rebuilding communities physically and emotionally after colonialism, loving self inspite of exclusive beauty standards, embracing uniqueness in the face of narrowed media representation, and honoring their creative contributions even when minimized and at times mocked by mainstream society. Brown Bohemians seeks to showcase and affirm the creative spirit that needs to see this.
