Performance & Exhibits
“Swamp Soothe” is an answered call from the ancestors, the land and the water. It came to me while on a recent tour of a historical site. Overcome with grief at the exclusion and erasure of Black and Indigenous bodies from the sanctioned herstorical record, I went for a walk on Oxbow trail, and was called to stop by the swamp and release my tears. In response to my anguish, this chant came through providing a balm for my soul.
