It is not enough to take up space in rooms unfixed for our inhabitance and we MUST first acknowledge our stolen histories to explore new realities.

A GOOD CRY 2018/APRIL

POETRY/PHOTOGRAPHY/FILM DIRECTION BY FRANCHESCA LAMARRE

FILM SCORE/MUSIC PRODUCTION BY TONY ROBINSON

 

Ayiti cheri (Dear, Haiti)
Mwen kriye (I cry)
Yon rèl bon (A good Cry)

The cry for connection to ones roots
Severed by survival and assimilation
Born into a world plagued by colorism 

She is Afro-Black
She is Afro-Caribbean
She is Afro-Future

Wade in her waters
Adorn her body
Move with her rhythms

Kriye, yon rèl bon
