Have you ever seen a group of people walking across Main Green and thought to yourself, “Wow. Who ARE they?” One such trio: Babette Thomas, Ruby Aiyo Gerber, and Pazia Bermudez-Silverman. Though we could have talked to any one of them individually, we thought it would be even more interesting to put their styles in conversation with one another. Check it out.
