BEAUTIFUL IN EVERY SHADE ™ Co-Directors Carlton Mackey and Ross Oscar Knight also signed copies of their books "50 Shades of Black" and "In His Moment", both of which debuted at the festival.

50 Shades of Black uses the power of art and personal stories to explore the complex relationship between skin tone and sexuality in the formation of self-identity. 

In His Moment is a multi-cultural look at the wedding day from the perspective of the groom.  It is a collection of emotional stories and images from men across the globe captured by international photo-culturalist Ross Oscar Knight.
