Samantha CC is a performance artist, curator, filmmaker, videographer and vocalist living and working in New York City.

Since 2016 since has been curating a performance and video series, along with a zine called The Great BE, or Great Black Expanse. The goal of the project is to center work by artists from the African Diaspora whose work defies the confines that the art world likes to place around black artists.
