Yes, This is a Love Story
Philosophers study it. Poets write about it. Crooners sing about its ability to bewitch, bother, and bewilder us all. Today, we’re talking about life and, yes, love with artist and documentarian Carla Joelle Brown. Her latest project is a love letter to her grandparents as she retraces their travels across the United States. What started out as a project to help Carla understand herself has blossomed into so much more. This is a story about love…for our dreams, ourselves, our families, for each other, and for our land.
