In honor of Black History Month, Mildred Howard, an internationally acclaimed mixed media artist, sculptor and designer is debuting her first NFT Collection, Millennials & XYZ. From 28 February to 7 March, the peer-to-peer marketplace OpenSea will showcase the work depicting the silhouettes of African American Youth on backgrounds with splashes of bright colors.

Mildred Howard grew up in Berkeley, California, USA to parents that were prominent civil rights activists. In her own work, Howard has been an advocate for social justice both in her professional and personal life. For the last five years, Howard has been working on her latest collection, Millennials & XYZ after being emotionally affected by the killings of young black men such as Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown. Wanting to better understand the loves of African American Youth, Howard set out to learn how these tragedies made an impact on their life by speaking to younger black men and women in the community.
