For Juneteenth, Rikkí Wright reclaims freedom, and herself, on film

In Rikkí Wright’s June 13 celebration, dance past and present go hand in hand – towards a future full of possibilities. For Image, the photographer and filmmaker created a short, three-minute celebration of the holiday film dedicated to herself and her ancestors, which she describes as “a meditation on the regain your freedom.” In it, vintage clips – including Maya Angelou’s retelling of “The Mask” – are woven into celebratory scenes from Leimert Park’s June 13 Festival last week. Wright writes: “June sixteenth, a day my ancestors proclaimed was the day they recognized themselves as free. “There’s no waiting on paper or people to verify that fact.”
