Genius. Edison says it’s 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration. Clearly, he underestimated the power of a double-shot latte to fuel it. So, grab a steamy cup of Joe and an early morning nosh at this month’s CreativeMornings, a breakfast lecture series for the creative community.

Head on over to Canvas and sip on Vice City Beans’ killer brews while local creatives and entrepreneurs tackle the topic of “genius.” Dress code: an on-trend thinking cap. Hosted by Malik Benjamin, Najja Moon, founder oF BLCK family artist collective, leads the conversation.

As a damn good student athlete for most of her life, there seemed to be a certain level of “commitment” that coaches and peers expected that was just shy of attained. It’s because she was distracted by pretty things. In a jumble of rhetoric and prose or design and clothes, Najja found solace in that mess that seems to express…. Finally ditching basketball for the last time as a Senior in college, she gave full attention to Art. Completing undergrad with a double major. A BA in Communications and was in the first class of students to earn a BA in Studio Art from Pfeiffer University. She learned that designing uniforms for the team and taking photos of every moment was a connection because it was creating.

Now as a young adult (can you still say that, at 30?) she has established the artist collective the BLCK family based out of Miami, FL with her long time creative partner, Rashaud Michel. As the co-founder her role encompasses everything from creative direction to graphic design. Stints in Film Production, Hospitality and Fashion all preceded her current home and have added in diversifying her experience. Recently, Najja has partnered with Author Yajaira De La Espada to form Negra Sappha. A literature initiative that is bearing fruit to a collaborative zine and youth creative lab in partnership with the SOHO house in Miami Beach.
