Afro+ProjectionLAB

: a place for testing, experimentation, and practice.

The woman in the photo below was said to have been able to project images over her shoulders. As shared by my Great Uncle Alvin, this woman would lead Black folk of French Camp, Mississippi into wooded areas and show them things. Uncle Alvin couldn’t say for sure if the projected images were still or moving. This woman was my Great-Great Aunt Jane, and given our commitment and admiration for showing Black experimental cinema, I will speculate that the images were moving. Aunt Jane is the forerunner of The Afro+ProjectionLAB.
