EMANCIPATION is a diverse collection of human and humane stories linked in an omnipotent way that only real life can assemble. Individual narratives of virtue, mischief, faith, immorality, morality, commitment and perseverance bridge generational gaps and make whole a humane patchwork in an otherwise ambiguous life-scape. In a society where quick labels and categories are selective means of branding one’s character, the individual is suffocating. These stories embrace our differences allowing them space to breathe. As we step through this journey of ordinary and extraordinary circumstances, perhaps the lesson learned is these snapshots is far more common threads bind than differences that divide.
