Johnica Rivers is a multimedia storyteller and researcher currently working in-residence at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University. While at CDS @ Duke, she is taking a deep dive into the life and work of visual artist Elizabeth Catlett and exploring the tradition of Black women's travel as a creative practice. Through her multi-disciplinary consultancy, Johnica Rivers Projects, Johnica takes on editorial assignments, brand collaborations, immersive media, and other endeavors with an eye that’s equally curious, curatorial, and critical. When she's not on campus at Duke, she lives and works itinerantly between Los Angeles and her hometown of Fort Worth, Texas.
