i was incredibly honored to have my work displayed at UC San Diego's Cross-Cultural Center Art Gallery and at M.O.M's Café (aka Muir Woods) in celebration of Black History Month. the gallery documents and celebrates the Black Like Water- Black Surf Week program at UC San Diego. i am deeply grateful for the opportunity to share my photography that is aligned with our collective value of not postponing joy. the gallery opening evening was beyond special- it was sacred... thank you to all that attended! It was a beautiful (re)connection, and i loved sharing about my experience photographing the collective joy experienced through the Black Surf Week program. the ability to heal in community is a beautiful thing, especially in sharing each other's stories and reflecting on how and why the Black diaspora can heal our relationships with water and land. the gallery will be on display through the end of March 2024, and i encourage everyone to experience the powerful written narratives and photographs on display.---------------------------------------------------------------Black Like Water mission statement:Black Like Water identifies, amplifies, and analyzes narratives and practices that highlight the significance of honoring Black relationships to the natural world.Through our research and practice Black Like Water seeks to promote healing, restoration, and sovereignty in ways that do the liberatory work of not only combating anti-blackness and interrupting structural racism, but in manners that also celebrate the Black diaspora, acknowledge ancestral practices and knowledge, and imagine Black futures.
