Gods Grace O‘er Da South
Photography, Research
05—2020



    By using research, writing, photography, family image archives, and craft, I present my work as God's Grace O'er Da South. To build new bridges of human understanding beyond colorism, to rebuild cultural capital, and to discuss the concept of reparations; that is the purpose of this project. The idea struck me while visiting Motha's congregations Mount Zion 1st Baptist Church in San Antonio, Texas. My great-grandmother, Gurtha Lee Lockett—or Motha’ among family,  was born in 1913 and is now 106 years in age.
