Dr. Fari Nzinga.

As the city marks its tricentennial year, curator and artist Dr. Fari Nzinga is making sure people of color are not left out of history or the conversation around it. Her exhibit, The Rent Is Too Damn High!, will open on Saturday, April 7 at the Crescent City Boxing Gym. Fari joined NolaVie's Kelley Crawford in the studio to talk about the work behind and in front of her exhibit.
