Journey: Addis to DC

This experimental docupoem takes listeners on a meditative trip between two capital cities—Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and Washington, DC. Ethiopian-American writer and multidisciplinary artist Saaret Emebeat Yoseph creates an intimate audio scrapbook as she records the personal and family history of her mother, Emebeat Askale Bekele, who immigrated to DC from Addis, in the early 1970s. Together, daughter and mother, explore identity, migration, memory and the meaning of “home.” Inspired by Ntozake Shange’s choreopoem, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When the Rainbow Is Enuf, Yoseph creates a layered narrative collage, combining her mother’s oral history with original poetry.
