“That is the most important thing...for me as an artist and specifically a photographer, to reclaim the right to be human. To reassert the humanity of black people.” -Jessica Rycheal

I have a published interview on NPR. Is this real life?! I had a really good time talking with Marcie Sillman of NPR member station, KUOW. It’s one of the two stations in the Seattle area, and one of the highest-rated NPR stations in the country. It’s was a huge honor to be able to talk a bit about EVERYDAY BLACK, growing up in Georgia, migrating to the Pacific Northwest, and the power of taking up space as a black person.
