I am always grateful to do work that challenges and educates me. I shot and edited this video, which is a summary look at Blood at the Root, an exhibit co-curated by Ayanna Banks-Harris, Rachel Caidor, Mariame Kaba from Project NIA, Deana Lewis, Andrea Ritchie and Ash Stephens.
In the words of the curators, this exhibit "focuses our attention on the fact that all #BlackWomensLivesMatter and all #BlackGirlsLivesMatter. Relying on various artifacts, the curators narrate the experiences and resistance of Black women and girls (trans and non-trans) who have been brutalized, imprisoned and killed by the state and its agents."
The intent of this video is to share this work with people who were not able to attend the exhibit itself.
