Swamp Body - Recollections of the Saltwater Railroad




Activism is in Brittany Williams’ blood. So is street dance. So is the legacy of her Bahamian ancestors and the struggle of Black people in Florida.

She brings them to moving life in Swamp Body – Recollections of the Salt Water Railroad: embodied ritual, celebration, protest, struggle. “We still have that history in our bodies,” Williams says. “How do you access that information? It has to be through movement.”


Brittany Williams, a womanist, a ride or die freedom fighter, and art-maker – creates work that is the part reality, part fugitive. Brittany’s artistic work biomythically explores her ancestral lineage and memory of growing up in the swamplands of Florida. Brittany has traveled to various places in the Caribbean, South America, and Europe. She is a principal dancer with Olujimi Dance ( Michelle Grant Murray), and is a collaborator with Slippage (Thomas DeFrantz). She is a founder of Dancing for Justice organization, We Keep Us Safe Abolitionist Network, and Obika Dance. Williams work includes formerly organizing to stop the construction of four new jails in New York City, stopping the expansion of 500 new cops in the subway and also building out an mutual aid network focused on community safety and collectively being invested in each others’ safety and wellness. WIlliams uses dance and art making as a premise to organize and activate community to culturally, politically and socioeconomically shift and force radical change, disrupt, dismantle systems of oppression.
