Nsenga Knight | Co-Founder and Managing Editor

Growing up in a big Black Caribbean-American Muslim family in Flatbush, a Caribbean colony in Brooklyn, New York, Nsenga was born in the 80s and gained a love for culture and everything Black in the 90s. She left her parents home in 1999 via a full scholarship to Howard University where she studied Film Production and French. Nsenga later earned a Master of Fine Arts degree at the University of Pennsylvania. She chose to study film and fine arts because of her desire to document and share the stories of African American Muslims in all of our complexities, depth, and eccentricities. This personal mission is at the core of what she does at Sapelo Square. You can learn more about her artistic work and keep up with her exhibitions at
