About the speaker
With Brittani’s 222ForgottenCities movement, she has made it her business to go and document all the places around the world where melanated people live that the media keeps a one dimensional view on. DeepEastOakland, South Jamaica Queens- NY, Brownsville - Brooklyn, 8thward Mandeville - New Orleans, Englewood Chicago, North Philadelphia, West Baltimore, Watts California and (Tivoli Gardens) - Kingston Jamaica just to name a few. Through these travels and visual cultivations, Brittani realized that we are all connected, not just through the struggle, but beyond the flesh & through the spirit. We are beautiful & it’s undeniably evident our vibrations keep this world spinning.
