February 10, 2024 speaker: Lenny Foster, owner of Gallery 141 in St. Augustine, Florida. His Where We Stand series has been influenced by his relocation to Saint Augustine, and, more precisely, moving into the historic township of Lincolnville. In St. Augustine, he found himself at the center and early focus of the Civil Rights movement and discovered a deep, rich, powerful history of the first Africans and African American history in Saint Augustine. The historic community of Lincolnville played a huge role, largely unrecognized nationally, in shaping the development of the Civil Rights movement across the country.
The decision to use shoes, as the vehicle for storytelling came as a result of the controversy surrounding the kneeling of professional athletes protesting racism in America. The imagery and text aim to show who we are and where we have been as a people in this area. This history is vast and rich and we have stood, sat and knelt for many a high and honorable cause, not to mention, the struggle for everyday existence.
