"Exploring spirituality in a way that makes sense to me - through a queer black lens. After looking into ATRs (African Traditional Religions) and coming across the concept and process of creating ancestral altars, from 'A Little Juju Podcast', I decided to create my own. The podcast seeks to debunk the stigma attached to black indigenous spiritual practices in the Western world and encourages black folk to reconnect with their ancestors. These pieces depict my attempt at doing so and questioning whether they'd be proud of the person I am becoming".
