Sage Adams

Eighteen-year-old Sage Adams is inspiring her peers in a myriad of ways. Adams, an artist, an activist, and one of the creators of the Art Hoe Collective is speaking out about the need for diverse and complex representation in art spaces.

“Most famous artists are old, dead, White guys,” Adams says. “While that might be great for some people, I’m not completely comfortable with having to look at that as inspiration all of the time.”

Adams stars in the first episode of ESSENCE Magazine’s “Black Girl Magic” docu-series, directed by Laurie Thomas. Watch below.
