The Milkman's Baby

Terrible, Thanks for Asking

The Milkman's Baby

Morgan Jerkins spent many months piecing together the patchwork of her own family history, and many weeks literally wandering in the lands they had been rooted to so many years before. This is a powerful conversation about the privilege of documentation, the search for self and what it means to redefine yourself through your ancestors.
