    “GRITO” creates a positive voice for those disenfranchised by systemic racism, poverty, ICE raids, natural disasters, and disease, sparking dialogue about the richness the Latinx community brings to rural America, specifically Eastern North Carolina. It also showcases how the South, often depicted as singular in culture and slow to progress, is actually a diverse community full of vibrant culture and progressive minds. Lastly, “GRITO” creates an art space that empowers the Latinx diaspora in North Carolina.

    • Editorial Photographer / Photojournalist

    There’s a sharp chill in the air. Donning a goldenrod-yellow shirt with the words “Pay Black Farmers” emblazoned across the front and with long two-strand twists tied back away from her face, Gabrielle E.W. Carter tends to tomatoes steaming in a cast-iron pot atop a live fire, the light glinting off her skin as smoke wafts upward into the night sky.
