ReEducation of Freedmen’s Town

About

ReEducation of Freedmen’s Town is series of multi-media photographs by CAMHLAB artist-in-residence Ann ‘Sole Sister’ Johnson.

Johnson will collaborate with Freedmen’s Town residents to reenact historical photographs of the neighborhood—including those of past Juneteenth celebrations and Jack Yates’ family—then print the images on cotton and concrete. By utilizing her unorthodox printmaking methods, Johnson’s work will hearken back to Freedmen’s Town history by printing on cotton to invoke the neighborhood’s origins, and printing on concrete to honor the brick streets laid by its first residents. Johnson’s work aims to unify the past with the present and will culminate in an exhibition in a community gallery.
