With this fellowship, she worked directly with the Chief Curator & Milton Fine Curator of the Andy Warhol Museum. In 2018, Leslie received the Hot Metal Bridge Fellowship, a one-year post-baccalaureate fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh. It was here Leslie curated the exhibition Movements (2019), shown in the University Art Gallery, which explored the evolving histories, representations, and expression of the African Diaspora using archival materials.
