About This Project

I IS A LONG MEMORIED WOMAN – SYNOPSIS

This extraordinary video chronicles the history of slavery through the eyes of Caribbean women. A striking combination of monologue, dance, and song—griot-style—conveys a young African woman’s quest for survival in the new world.

Based on award-winning poems by Guyanese British writer Grace Nichols, the evocatively rendered story charts abusive conditions on sugar plantations, acts of defiance and the rebellion which led to eventual freedom.

I IS A LONG-MEMORIED WOMAN illuminates Black diasporic culture and heritage.
