LaRissa Rogers’ "On Belonging: The Space In Between" pays homage to the interconnected histories in the soil and land from which they are created, in order to explore the dual nature of flight and migration as a means of survival and self-preservation, speaking particularly to diasporic resilience.

As a first-generation Afro-Asian woman who recently relocated from the East to the West coast, Rogers relates personally to the dislocation and unfamiliarity of the self as connected to any one particular place or history. Pushing away from colonized notions of land as possession or indigeneity, Rogers explores the processes of movement as a practice Black and Brown people have used to conceptualize place, belonging, and cohabitation.
