Micah Pegues

BA CANDIDATE - Visual Culture, Media, and Postcolonial Theory

Micah is a student from Dallas, Texas, whose studies explore digital economies, the future of media, and representational practices. She began her college career at NYU's Tisch Film & Television program and soon realized her interests were more far-reaching than the film world. This led her to Gallatin where she began studying visual culture and other media.

Two of the most influential classes at Gallatin for her have been Jamie Berthe's "Postcolonial Theory and Visual Culture," and Sybil Cooksey's "Underground, Alien, Outsider, Queer: Black Culture at the Margins" and Myisha Priest's "Black in the City of Light". These courses dramatically changed the way Micah approached her concentration and helped broaden her academic and personal horizons. 

Outside of Gallatin, Micah is the founder, editor-in-chief, and creative director of Polychrome Mag., a magazine for creatives of color that she launched during her first year. After graduation, she hopes to work in the media industry helping to create responsible and representational media.
