Tara Roberts is a National Geographic Storytelling Fellow and former fellow at Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Open Documentary Lab. Roberts’ goal is to reimagine and reframe the origin story of Africans in the Americas and to tell stories that humanize and bring empathy, nuance and complexity to their journey. With the support of MIT and National Geographic, she followed a group of Black scuba divers, historians and archaeologists as they searched for and documented slave trade shipwrecks around the world, which became the long-form narrative podcast Into The Depths.
