Description:
"Spectacular", "Powerful", "Uplifting" and "Long Overdue" are some of the words used to describe the WOMEN OF A NEW TRIBE project, a photographic exhibition about the spiritual and physical beauty of the black women we see around us everyday.  Since its premier in June 2002, this exhibition has traveled to a number of cities where it has been enthusiastically received by the public and the media.  Blue Greenberg of the Herald-Sun, Durham NC wrote, "Jerry Taliaferro challenges us to re-think our ideas about beauty...".  Through the use of meticulously crafted black and white photography, Jerry Taliaferro has presented to us black women in a unique and exciting way that has touched thousands of people.  This book is a collection of the best images from this project.

If the book I DREAM A WORLD celebrated black women who changed America then WOMEN OF A NEW TRIBE honors the black women we see around us everyday. It is a magnificent tribute to our mothers, sisters, wives, daughters and friends.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Jerry Taliaferro was born in the small southern town of Brownsville, Tennessee. After graduating high school in May 1972, he joined the Army. Almost a year later he entered the United States Military Academy at West Point and graduated four years later as a member of the Class of 1977. His real interest in photography began when he was posted to Fort Bragg, North Carolina for the Special Forces Officers Course in 1981. While serving in Germany, his interest photography continued to grow and in 1985 he was published for the first time when a Munich magazine purchased the rights to one of his images. After returning to the United States in the Summer of 1985, Jerry began doing assignments for advertising and design firms. In July 1988, he left the military and began his pursuit of a career in commercial photography. Over the ensuing years, his interest turned more to fine art photography. This change in direction has resulted in several projects and published pieces. His one-man exhibition Women Of A New Tribe premiered at the Afro-American Cultural Center in Charlotte NC on 14 June 2002 and is now a traveling exhibit.
 
 

REVIEWS:
Once while listening to National Public Radio (NPR),  I heard that the author Toni Morrison had referred to African Americans as New World Africans
This struck a chord with me as I have always believed that African Americans are a new people.  I believe that African American are a new people born of the American experience,  a new people with a common history of struggle and triumph.  We are a new people, a New Tribe

African-American females have had a very difficult history: from slavery to racism to poverty. Although slavery has been abolished in this country, and
we are working on eradicating racism and poverty, in the 21st Century, African-American females face one of the most difficult hurdles we have ever had to face: a severe lack of self-respect....
