Finding Eric Brooks: Morning Through Art and Auto-Ethnography
In April of 1989 my father, Eric Brooks, left this world at the age of 24. I have wished he was here to give me advice or tell about his childhood. I wondered about the sound of his voice, his smile, his life. I wondered about half of my identity. So on my 26th year, I am beginning the journey to find father, celebrate his life and mourn his death through art, ethnography, and art education workshops that focus on helping others mourn through art and storytelling.
