I am cultural arts producer and documentarian with a special interest in documenting Black women’s stories and Black American family life. I began my work through specialized research institutions like the Charles L. Blockson Afro-American Collection in Philadelphia and the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in Harlem — where I am currently the Program Coordinator.
My documentation practice is informed by the intersections of archiving and contemporary art; collaboration and intervention; cultural equity and collective community memory.
In her work, Ladi'Sasha Jones, engages the intersections of digital storytelling, archival materials and cultural production.
Recent curatorial projects includes the Dreaming of Kin, Emmett Till Project, Writing Blackness: Harlem | Paris, for the exhibit, If You Build It and The Way Out Is Through, a literary art-book featuring commissioned works from three women writers.
Based in Harlem, Ladi'Sasha is launching a small press and web-platform on contemporary art and culture (IDA). She holds a B.A. in African American Studies from Temple University and a M.A. in Arts Politics from NYU, Tisch School of the Arts.
