In This Moment: Revolution Reckoning Reparation is a project where teams of Black writers and photographers were invited to profile ten Black leaders from across the city of Rochester resulting in a series of 10 chapbooks produced by VSW Press. ITM’s goal is to elevate and celebrate the breadth and scope of the revolutionary work being done by Black leaders, photographers and writers. The theme, In This Moment, is a challenge to the euphemism often used in lieu of talking about revolution, reckoning and reparation. We look to take the euphemism and ask it back to those most likely to use it. What is this moment? Amanda Chestnut-ITM Curator and Jeanne Strazzabosco-ITM Coordinator.
