We the People | Disrupting Silence
Public Installation: December 8, 2019 to June 19, 2020
Col. Charles Young Triangle Park
Artist: Nacinimod Deeodee – A Long Walk to Freedom
What does is mean to create space for reflection and visioning? What does it mean to know your past, present and future? What does it mean to know that you are more than enslaved people?
Harlem Needle Arts is pleased to present We the People | Disrupting Silence a public art installation that pays tribute to the ingenuity, creativity and sacrifices of Africans of the Diaspora, who suffered the atrocity of enslavement, marginalization and disenfranchisement.
Through this work we honor the strength of our past, present and future. Take time to visit the park, listen to the curated Sounds of Reflection DJ LotusMoon and explore the designs and crochet work of Nacinimod Deodee.
Be still with #We_The_People.
We the People | Disrupting Silence Details is made possible in part with funding and support from the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone Development Corporation, LMCC, New York State Council on the Arts, New York City Department Of Cultural Affairs in Partnership with the City Council, Harlem Community Development Corporation, Council Member Bill Perkins, and Marcus Garvey Park Alliance.
