Corrine Jasmin | Artist, Writer & Activist
Our conversation with Afro-Haitian artist Corrine Jasmin traces her upbringing as one of the few girls of color in her Erie, PA neighborhood through her time here in Pittsburgh – a city she has unbridled enthusiasm for while still providing an unflinching perspective on the societal conditions and challenges that are present here for women of color. We cover labels, the cultural biases at play with the definitions of beauty, the role skin color has played in her identity, fluid sexuality and how all of this has influenced her art. She is a refreshing and vibrant voice and displays a thoughtfulness that is well beyond her 22 years.
