"In her series Bitter Waters Sweet (2022), the photographer Letitia Huckaby traces the lineage of Africatown, the community just north of Mobile, Ala., where Huckaby traces some current inhabitants who are related to West Africans who were enslaved and transported to the United States on the Clotilda, the recently excavated slave ship. In documenting the place and its people, Huckaby hopes to convey that “emancipation is not a definitive idea; it’s a process." Read the article in Ebony by Delaina Dixon.
