Letters to Black Girls Project

Tamara Winfrey-Harris, along with noted author and award-winning columnist Rochelle Riley and writer Deesha Philyaw, is launching the Letters to Black Girls Project. The goal is to support and inspire black girls through feminist, anti-racist, body positive, LGBTQ+ positive, anti-respectability politics and pro-black letters from black women.

“1619: The Will to Survive”

USA TODAY created the experience of being held captive on the San Juan Bautista as an augmented reality experience on your phone. The experience is part of the project “1619: Searching for Answers”:

“The experience uses 3-D images to place interactive visuals in the room with you as you listen to acclaimed storyteller Tamara Winfrey-Harris  narrate the journey of the Middle Passage, with a script written by Dolen Perkins-Valdez, the best-selling author of The Wench.”
