Freedmen’s Truths

February 1 - April 28
CAMHLAB at POST Houston

About

Freedmen’s Truths is a body of work by CAMHLAB artist-in-residence Billion Tekleab, documenting the perspectives and histories of the residents of Freedmen’s Town.

Instead of an investigative approach to documenting the neighborhood, Freedmen’s Truths is a collaborative, hands-on effort to capture the spirit that lives within the residents and the ground they walk on. Taking the form of a poetry picture book, Freedmen’s Truths aims will encapsulate the handwriting, pictures, and drawings of the people on the pages. Along with the printed version of the book, there will be a short film of the makings of the project. With the help of the residents, the project will be an ode to freedom and futures beyond.
