two sections of an untitled work in progress

Witnessing Her:
Jessica Emmanuel’s commanding presence and starkly impassioned movements capture the essence of the vicarious trauma triggered by images, sounds, stories and details of senseless black deaths. A seemingly viral wave of violence belies the deeply personal impact of each confrontation, each bullet and each chalk outline.

Decolonize That Mind:
“My point is that we must decolonize our minds and re-name and re-define ourselves . . . In all respects, culturally, politically, socially, we must re-define ourselves and our lives, in our own terms.” ~Max Roach.

Expanding her untitled work-in-progress Jessica Emmanuel moves deeper into the question of identity, both imposed by society and understood by oneself.
