Colorism, root work, and history you should already know, oh my! Join Jen and Teri with special guest, Eden Royce, as they discuss the 1991 Julie Dash independent film, Daughters of the Dust. This is an incredibly intense and languid film about a Gullah family from Saint Helena Island and their preparations to migrate to the mainland and north in 1902. The team discusses the interweaving, non-linear storytelling, the significance of root work, the focus on hands, and the trauma, hopes, and roots of generations of a Black family in diaspora.
We hope you enjoy the episode!
