The Baptism

Written by poet and artist Carl Hancock Rux and directed by artist Carrie Mae Weems, The Baptism is a visual poem inspired by the legacies of John Lewis and C.T. Vivian. In The New York Times, Maya Phillips called the piece "a work that is freeing and radical in a way that Black art so often doesn't get to be."
