I have named this blog Alligator Woods to pay homage to the physical and spiritual site that protected, sheltered and inspired the men and women of vision who came together to demand their freedom. By naming this website Alligator Woods (Bwa Kayiman in Haitian Kreyol), a site of resistance and liberation in the natural world, I invoke the human spirit’s need to realize its potential, the ancestors’ hand in facilitating that process and nature’s key role in the equation.
I share my visual art, my writings, and projects in progress. I also highlight the work of others that contribute to our collective struggle for liberation of the mind and the spirit.
