Comprised of images sourced from the 1970s Colombo detective board game, video game advertisements and scientific illustrations, Tuskegee is a meditation on the Tuskegee Syphilis study. The ethically unjustified study was conducted between 1932 and 1972 by the United States Public Health Service and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It used African Americans as experimental subjects without their knowledge or consent.

Jibade-Khalil Huffman uses found archival material alongside contemporary ephemera to address slippage in memory and language, particularly when it comes to race and visibility. His installation work (often site-specific) uses video, projections, photographic light boxes and photo collages printed on layered transparencies and paper. Huffman works at the intersection of several disciplines, and he holds an MFA in both the literary arts and studio art.
