  • (Words by @RBecksLee) “Why does life have so little value in our neighborhood? You only see a Black man in America who isn’t a politician when it’s bad. First we’re Black, then we come from impoverished neighborhoods, we don’t have the right education. I have a white friend from the same neighborhood, same place. I have to put on this green shirt so someone would want to hear my story. Nothing wrong with that, I love this green shirt, but it should be different.” William Golden is the kind of person you can feel even before you come to hear him. His eyes are loud in that way, making the visions they’ve endured pronounced and unapologetic. He is a poet and an ex-offender. He is a philosopher, a thinker, a “rapper who knows words.” If life in Frayser, North Memphis, Tennessee were an opera he would be the libretto— the key to your orientation. He is Golden. On June 17, 2018, in a conversation at Lifeline to Success, a local organization founded by Pastor DeAndre Brown to help ex-offenders with reintegration after a prison sentence, Will recited Tupac: “I’m not gonna change the world, but I guarantee that I will spark the brain that will change the world.” The topic was “100% participation, 100% of the time.” The question: How do you participate in a community under a system that has excluded you and yours? Will today holds onto the goals he had two years ago, further developed though not materialized. “I wish I had the ability to go and protest with my brothers and sisters. I wish I already had a platform to speak from,” he said. “I won’t be able to sustain myself if I don’t work and I really want to start a podcast, but it’s hard to come up with the money for it when I’m in survival mode all the time.” For Will, 100% participation 100% of the time means negotiating between modes of survival within a mindset anchored in his dreams. It is in knowing that given all your efforts, in the end, you remain within a system that does not offer you the tools to make dreams attainable. It is in recognizing that the challenge is a call to everyone else’s participation too: “We need people to invest in our dreams.” @lorraineustar @insidenatgeo @catchlight.io @memphiskid901

  • Waitangi, New Zealand | In June’s issue of National Geographic...check out some of the world’s most fearless leaders and the issues they face in the article “Taking the Lead.” It was an honor to meet and photograph these women, most of whom must fight the fight, everyday, while keeping safe and maintaining their place in government. Thank you also to the many women who didn’t make the publication, I will feature some of you here in the coming days. Props to the badass women behind the scenes....fearless writer, Rania Abouzeid. One of the smartest photo editors I’ve had the pleasure of working with, @_mallorybenedict … and Sarah Leen @roseleen for inspiration and encouragement. Also, @rebekahbellbarlas for the beautiful instagram story up on @natgeo today! I wish I could add a byline to the courageous women who led the way for these stories. Thank you to local managers Monica Garcia in Bolivia, Khwaga Ghani in Afghanistan and Jessica Doube in New Zealand. On Waitangi Day in New Zealand, Bronwyn Clifford Waiomio, 16, participates with Te Korowai, a group that teaches Maori from all over the world some of the original teachings of their culture. Today, Maori have increased their prominence in society and government. ****link in bio @natgeo @noorimages #nikoneuropeanambassador

  • Pamlico County, NC | “Lay low and help flatten the curve” from our community theater in this small, often forgotten, county. I am documenting rural Pamlico County’s experience under covid 19. It appears as if the economy has hit harder than the virus has, so far. @noorimages #nikoneuropeanambassador @insidenatgeo

  • Pamlico County, NC | For those of you unfamiliar with the southern United States, the Piggly Wiggly ("the pig") is a popular grocery store chain. The local owner in Pamlico County, NC, Billy Flockhart, has worked tirelessly to keep goods coming to this rural, often forgotten, part of North Carolina. And its a battle. Many in the community are elderly, and many are on food stamps. Normally, he says, he receives 96% of his orders. Now, he receives 50%. And it often arrives a day or two late. Ive been spending time in the past few weeks looking at the local impact of the virus near my home, where it appears the economy is hitting before the full-force of the virus has. @noorimages @insidenatgeo #covid #nikoneuropeanambassador

  • March 13: Last night, over 100 residents of Wilmot, NH, gathered in their old town hall for their yearly town meeting. The corona virus was mentioned once. Their hand sanitizer, never-used. A white plastic bucket kept the door open to avoid using the handle. This beautiful act of pure democracy was haunting as I tried to escape hugs at the end of the night. It is the “Live free or die” state. If we, as freelance photojournalists, can’t travel, we will have a hard time surviving. This will be my last trip, for now. A long road ahead. @noorimages #onassignment @natgeo

  • A moment of worship. —————- One of my favorite experiences of the past decade was spending time with factory workers in Bangalore, India, with NYT reporter Ellen Barry. These young women are the first generation of unmarried, rural women from the area to experience the joys and pitfalls of relative financial independence. Ellen and I spent weeks with these brave young women — though the story ran for one day. This month I will share more of the story—the subtleties, celebrations and heartbreak. Thank you to all that helped with the story, including editor David Furst who gave me the time to do it right. @noorimages @ellenbarrynyt_ #nikoneuropeanambassador @insidenatgeo

  • With freedom came heartbreak. These young factory workers had little experience with money and were repeatedly cheated, over-charged and robbed. Here, they comfort one woman who’s phone was stolen.
