BRI WILLIAMS — PLAYBILL

128

 

I have found solace within my father’s stories since I was a child. I started to make a record for family keepsake this past year. He was born and raised in Marrero, Louisiana, in a small town that was more like a family. The town remained segregated until the late 1970s. 

The stories became fables, as the characters and elements that are rooted in the aspect of strife, are told from a place of gratitude and comedy. I wanted to celebrate the connection between story telling and art making. The people and experiences that mold us into who we become at the end of our journey. — Bri Williams*
