Just sharing with you my recent article in The New York Times Magazine that published last Sunday, February 16, 2020.
It was great working with such a wonderful team including photographer Dannielle Bowman and a great editorial team. Thanks too to the research assistants of the Binghamton University/Harriet Tubman Center for the Study of Freedom and Equity.
