Memory Fleet with Jasmine Hearn

Memory Fleet is created for the people and places that have mothered Jasmine. It is for all Black people who mother. The project begins with Hearn’s return home and a solo, MEMORY KEEP(H)ER, made with their grandmother, Claudette Nickens Johnson as a way to build an alternative archive for her stories since she was beginning to lose her ability to remember. The project is set to premiere in Houston in April 2024. Jasmine Hearn is a Houston Black Dance Collective Member.
