    The curation of several video segments titled “ROC City Speaks,” aimed at providing disseminating on-the-street interviews with protestors directly to the public versus being filtered by mainstream media channels. The segments, also provide a call to action to encourage more local residents to join the movement in solidarity. “The people of this community have had enough of status quo politics and have a lot to say about dealing with the pandemic of racism in Rochester while also simultaneously dealing with the coronavirus pandemic as well.”

    Black Lives Matter, A Sanctuary for Daniel Prude is a curatorial project that brought together over 12 BIPOC artists to document the Black Lives Matter movement in Rochester, NY. The project is the first to receive partial funding from the Rochester Area Community Foundation’s Arts Prevail Fund, which seeks to document the racial justice protests that began after the murder of George Floyd and escalated in August with news of the March killing of Daniel Prude while in the custody of Rochester police.
