The road trip is a central part of the American identity.
But for many Americans — specifically Black Americans — the road can be a place of repression, control, and lethal violence.

Willett teaches photography at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and the Museum of Fine Arts has purchased two prints from the project. The full collection is out now as a book.
