The Mia Galleries, in the North Terminal, near Gate 26 in the Miami International Airport, currently houses a powerful photographic display celebrating the beauty and strength and spirit of black women. The exhibit is called "Women of a New Tribe," and features women selected from the Miami-Dade Aviation Department.
Noted photographer Jerry Taliaferro premiered the "Women of a New Tribe" photo exhibit in June of 2002 at the Afro-American Cultural Center in Charlotte, N.C. Since then, the exhibit has traveled to several cities, where local women have been photographed and included in the exhibition. The women were chosen for contributions they have made to their respective communities, and include teachers, businesswomen, wives, mothers and grandmothers.
Local women included in the exhibit are: Miriam Adderley; Michelle Charles; Althea Coleman; Cynthia Collins; Tametria Harris; Sonia Bridges; Katherine James; Lauraine Murray; Cynthia Manuel; Michele Raymond; Margaret H. Moss; Stephanie Momplasir; Gail Seay; Lorraine Washington; Sharon Weekes; Gina Thomas and Bobbie Jones-Wilfork.
