The Mahogany Project began in June 2006, when seven African-American female artists came together from various artistic disciplines to share and hone their craft.

Since that time, the Mahogany Project has continued to introduce and develop African American artists as well as others from the African diaspora with the additional goals of sharing their original work with the public, reaching out to other social justice and community organizations for partnerships and intentionally using art to promote healthy conversation and change.
