Life of Benjamin Banneker

Life of Benjamin Banneker focuses on engagement with two community groups: the Soul Tigers of Benjamin Banneker Academy (a drumming band) and the residents of Gibb Mansion. In a series of workshops with each community, we propose to develop narratives as well as large-scale objects that will culminate in an outdoor parade/pageant. The history of the project, in-progress and the final event, will be documented in a book as well as a video.
