Star Spangz is a video that involves a translation and deconstruction of the US national anthem, using my own performativity, musicality, and ethnic heritage as a launching point to think through the diasporic condition, US-Liberia aesthetic and historical connections, and the notion of home. This video explores the way identity is constructed, navigated, felt and molded.
