Red Summers: Omaha’s 1919 lynching

I provided narration for Bayeté Ross Smith’s 360 video about the 1919 lynching of Will Brown in Omaha. Smith combines historic photos with present-day 360-degree video from the same exact locations. The effect is powerful. Watch the video and read Jimmie Briggs’ accompanying essay at The Guardian. It’s one part of Smith’s “Red Summers” project.
