THE SAGE PROJECT PHASE II: HANNIBAL SQUARE ELDERS TELL THEIR STORIESLocation: Hannibal Square Heritage Center Gallery
This exhibit will be featured at the Hannibal Square Heritage Center from April 12 to August 31, 2019.
The Hannibal Square Heritage Center unveiled 17 new portraits and living histories of their most senior residents – now in their 80s and 90s – who are natives or longtime residents of the African American west side Winter Park Community.
The oral interviews were lovingly captured by Heritage Center Historians Fairolyn Livingston and Mary Daniels, both longtime residents as well. The exquisite portraits of these elders were captured by documentary photographer Peter Schreyer.
Adding to the existing Sage Project permanent collection that dates to 2012, “These histories, however personal, have a familiarity that resonates with the residents of African American communities around the country,” explains Heritage Center Chief Historian Livingston.
