“Six Shades of Death” refers to the environmental harms that disproportionately impact Black and Brown settlements, including air pollution, water pollution, soil contamination, climate change, deforestation, and species extinction. Theseproblems are often interconnected, and their effects can devastate communities that rely on the environment for their livelihoods and well-being.
Characterized by their intricate detailing and complex narratives, Doucet’s works also examine the importance of preserving cultural heritage and protecting the rights of local communities in the face of rapid development and gentrification.
“Water Grieves in the Six Shades of Death” raises awareness and promotes dialogue about environmental justice and socialinequality by bringing attention to these critical issues. Doucet encourages viewers to consider the intersection of environmental and social issues and the importance of collective action towards a more just and sustainable future.
