“You know, I've never seen a Black woman play Mark Antony,” said Tia James, who is playing that role in Andrew Borba's upcoming production of "Julius Caesar." “So, I think by switching it up, changing it up some time, we can break down this box that we not only put Shakespeare in, but that we put people in or that we put life in," James said.

UNC Student artist discovers her culture by living in another one

“I think it’s important to share my art because I want people to know that it doesn’t have to mean anything. My art doesn't necessarily have to represent something and be life changing and world changing. I just think it’s nice to have a pretty image show up on your feed, and a lot of the art I see is not Indian art, so I also want to be somebody that exposes people around me to an Indian style of art.”  Meet the UNC student blending her personality with traditional Indian art techniques to create a unique style.
