Erica Buddington, Nona Faustine, and Honorée Fanonne Jeffers  present archival research–based practices that create and uplift missing narratives.

This is the second talk of the three-part series "John Wilmerding Symposium on American Art: Afro-Atlantic Histories," which gathers literary and visual artists to reflect on how art responds to and shapes both official and overlooked narratives wrought by the transatlantic slave trade and its legacies.
