Right of Return Project


Beverly’s Right of Return project will further messages of youth advocacy, community, compassion, and redemption through the creation of an autobiographical film and photography narrative detailing her experiences post-prison. Introduced to photography in 2016 at the age of 33, Price witnessed the rapid effects of gentrification around her and felt moved to document its progression so that her fellow DC natives could read a story told by one of their own. Her project is currently in process.
