Germaine Ingram sheds light on improvisation in the archive and sparks a new idea for Charlyn Griffith-Oro, who has been searching for the pieces that will show how their black and indigenous ancestors cultivated land in and around Philadelphia. “Improvisation, when done well, represents a way of knowing … a willingness to embrace uncertainty.”
In the intro, you’ll hear Charlyn misgendered with the pronoun “her,” then correctly referenced as “they.” PACSCL apologizes for the mistake and for any confusion.
