Format: Hardcover
I was honored to be named as the official photographer for the African Burial Ground National Monument's dedication. Whereas my full photo essay is far more extensive, a portion of my work and historical interpretation can be seen in Freedom In My Heart, Chapter Three, titled "Stolen Away". The African Burial Ground, A Gallery, Pages 80-81. I was part of this project for many years and proud that Howard University, my Spiritual Alma Mater played a major role. My memorializing in film, photography and essay of the dedication on October 5, 2007 brought Howard's contribution full circle. My full photography, filming and essays go far beyond the monument in New York, it's one of many I have memorialized and historically interpreted throughout North America and the Caribbean - hence the name African Burial Ground(s). When the monument was designed and dedicated, I gave the name at one end, "The Door of Return". I have photographed and filmed many many people from around the country and the world at this opening. The one idea being, no matter who you are, from teacher to President of the United States, the one true and undeniable right one has is "Freedom". The original term stems from "The Door of No Return" at Senegal Dungeon on Goree Island, Fortress Elmina, Cape Coast Castle and others in Ghana, on the Gold and Ivory Coast. Captured Africans to be enslaved passed through these places and went through doors never to be seen again - hence the term "The Door of No Return". My Great Grandmother died at the age of 103. Although I was 6 years old, I knew my Great Grandmother, saw the lashes on her back and scaring from her shackles. I went to Africa and saw these places, my heart sanked as I felt the pain of my own family enslaved.Read more ›
