Its been a whirlwind. Alana Bartol and I have met with archivists, historians, students, community members, artists and tomorrow we’ll speak to newcomers. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the time I’ve spent in Windsor but it went by so quickly. On Saturday I’ll be on my way home.
I’m realizing that I’ve taken on a very large project. There is much to learn about the history of slavery in this area. I am piecing it together from various sources but I’m not a historian. I’m looking at this history through the eyes of an artist. I’m not looking for just “the facts”. Like Toni Morrison, I’m looking for “the truth” of the lived Black experience.
