"Gospel Number Eight: Tributary" defiantly faces and confronts Edwards' own American history while shedding light on her ancestor's struggles by using personal narratives and historically researched significances. "Gospel Number Eight: Tributary" is a meditative reimagining of her ancestors’ relationship and reconciliation with the Atlantic Ocean—the body of water through which they were harrowingly ushered into The Middle Passage—a time of in-betweenness for those being traded from Africa to The Americas—until their settlement at the Savannah River. (Total running time: 5:10 min.)
