Joor Baruah



THE VOYAGE—Joor Baruah’s Center supported film—is a documentary film anchored at the first African American Yacht Club, The Seafarers Yacht Club (SYC) on the Anacostia river in Washington DC, and will weave narratives and themes of socio-environmental injustices that existed and still exist very close to the epitome of world power, The White House. Baruah aspires to involve the SYC community and boaters and enhance their sense of belonging, urging them to celebrate the generational resilience in their communities. Baruah would like the film to engage academics, researchers, policy makers, politicians, activists, corporations, and the public to contribute towards social and environmental justice themes portrayed through the story.
