Rebba A. Moore is a writer with a relational practice, working towards clinical licensure as a psychotherapist. In the spring of 2021 she was a co-faciliator for a Care Session with community partners: Chicago Torture Justice Center, Justice for Families, and Black Lives Matter Chicago. Her collaborative contributions preserve the oral history of the implicated members of Justice For Families with a sound tapestry. The metaphorical interweaving of narrative is a direct allusion to the historical use of textile in the counter-protests of Chilean Arpilleras, the embroidered history of the African American quilts, and the forgotten ancestral practices of the Yoruba and Bakongo across West and Central Africa who offered rich cloth to honor the deceased.
