Add comment on:Crocker Art Museum ~ Autumnal Equinox Reading of the Emancipation Proclamation
khubaka, michael harris
The goal of the 1865 Project is to compile primary source documentation of the salient contributions of people of African ancestry during the California Gold Rush and unique challenges of Slavery in California (1840 -1865) We provided the design, content and community participants for the Opening Ceremony for Emancipating the Past: Kara Walker's Tales of Slavery and Power. The entire experience provided a wonderful example of the duality of opposites in providing a basic authentic look at Slavery in California. The journey continues... the legacy of Edwin Bryant Crocker and the early California Republican Party mirrors the U.S. Colored Troops from California during the US Civil War, and open secret continues, by design.
