Portraits and text from a document titled "Anti-Miscegenation Laws of the Several States: 1932" (established by the Commonwealth of Virginia) are recontextualized and graphically displayed as "bookmarks". These reference the increasingly influential role of reading and research in my practice and in the writing of a personal narrative within a social, historical context.
