On this edition of Independent Sources, hosted by Sarah Pizon we take a look at some of the ethnic and immigrant artists at work in New York City. We profile henna artist Farzana Fatema, who has turned the ancient art form into a business. We talk to Nuyorican artist, Rodriguez “Roca” Calero, about her unique technique called “acrollage." Then we revisit our piece on how black women and men are bucking old taboos and “going natural."
