Edmund “Umoja” Herman, President and Co-Founder of Sisters in Harmony, a native of St. Lucia was inspired when he met Gordon Parks in the 1970s. Edmund will conduct a photo shoot throughout the entire day on Saturday, contributing to his collectible Sister’s in Harmony photo portraits. An acclaimed international photographer, his colorful collection of culturally positive works is highly appealing, moving and, at times, very emotional. His passion for this project started several years ago with just two women as subjects in a photo project he named Sisters in Harmony. Together with Co-Founder and Author of the book “Survivors,” Ruby Burke, they continue to drive Sisters in Harmony’s mission of promoting positive images of women. In a very short span of time, Sisters in Harmony’s purpose has been supported by an acclaimed community of women and in increasing numbers, men, who support the mission. Sisters in Harmony has several hundred members, spanning all 50 states and several countries.
