A Cross-Cultural Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos)
About my documentary
Altars will focus on embracing the tradition and spirit of Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) to create a cross-cultural tradition that can benefit and elevate the voices of American minority communities.
As an African American who has participated in Day of the Dead, I know how this tradition can provide my community with the platform to proactively celebrate black life, remember black history, and strengthen our community, while also allowing us to build bridges with our Mexican, Latino, and indigenous neighbors.
Altars will document the creation of this transformational multicultural celebration.
