As part of its ongoing evolution as an expansive multidisciplinary platform, studio and creative agency Saint Heron – founded by Solange – has launched a second interactive digital experience on its website in the dossier series. This time, it shines the spotlight on the story of Womack & Womack, a legendary singing and songwriting wife and husband duo from the 1980s and 1990s – otherwise known as Linda Womack and Cecil Womack. Their three daughters Zekuumba (BG), Zeimani, and Kucha (KC) Zekkariyas have teamed up with the award-winning author of Black is the Body, Emily Bernard, to tell their story in an intimate arena, filled with portraits, interview excerpts, and old recordings of the famous duo. It features unseen video footage, music, and family photographs for a limited time.
The digital dossier, designed by graphic designer Sablā Stays, “recounts the Womack’s journey into raising and educating their seven children in over eight countries, and four continents, while creating new family structures spiritually, culturally and musically,” says Saint Heron. “It’s a legacy story paying homage to Linda and Cecil Womack’s unique and inspiring journey.” The Womack Sisters have granted Saint Heron unprecedented access to their family’s share of unpublished home video footage, original family photos, and other sentimental memorabilia. Not only does the digital dossier offer something for fans of Womack & Womack, but also offers a glimpse into the lives of Black artists working in the limelight during the 1980s and 1990s.
