Photo of Myra Riley Inniss at what is likely her last trip to Barbados.
Notes: Umi’s maternal grandparents, Edgar and Myra Inniss, immigrated to the US, specifically Harlem, in 1916 and 1924, respectively. They passed in the 1980s in Queens. Between that time, Myra traveled several times to Barbados. A reconstruction of that story is in the Portraits collection.
