Ashes in the Root Cellar
At a former Underground Railroad safehouse turned 21st Century Airbnb, ghosts of once-enslaved Black women yearn for redemption through encounters with their modern-day counterparts. But the contemporary Black women who visit only appear free; true liberation is out of their reach unless they uncover secrets of their pasts.
ASHES IN THE ROOT CELLAR is a chilling, subtly political tale about the links between past and present, the complexity of being Black in white spaces. The tone is at once haunting and hopeful, as women and girls, in both spirit and corporeal forms, unlock the secrets of their interconnected identities.
