Warm Water is a collection of re-narrated visual works based on the event that sparked the Chicago Race Riot of 1919. These works unfold the story involving five Black teens, and what reportedly caused the death of Eugene Williams in Lake Michigan on the South Side of Chicago. With noted recollections and events reported, the work documents and sheds light on the marginalizing oppositions the teens faced during the fragile height of racial sociopolitical conditions nationwide.
