about

This piece - commissioned by Michi Meko - is the full version of the public artwork curated for Flux Night Atlanta 2013. The piece was sampled as part of the opening of a sound theater of Negro prison work songs, played over massive loudspeakers to wake up the souls of Negro men who were forced to lay the tracks in and around Atlanta as the re-enslavement of Black Americans increased during the Civil War up to World War II. Most of these free men were imprisoned on bogus charges enforced by Penal Labor/Servitude laws allowing the cycle of supremacy to continue. The inspiration for this sound work came from the pages of Slavery by Another Name written by Atlanta author and Pulitzer Prize-winner Douglas A. Blackmon.
