America Street, House of the Future
corners of America and Reid Streets
Artist: David Hammons

About this project: The artist selected a poor east side neighborhood to create a two-part work. He replaced a billboard image which promoted cigarettes and featured blacks, with his photograph of local children looking forward and upward toward a flag at the end of the park. He also constructed, with neighborhood help, a Charleston house that is smaller than normal scale. It represents, among other things, pride in the area’s old homes and in the past.

By the way, I completely forgot about that Tumblr Meetup at Starbucks last Saturday. I was kind of looking forward to it, too. Did anyone else go? How was it? Who did you meet?

WIKITONGUES: Caroline speaking Gullah and English

There’s an invaluable wisdom in the stories spoken in other languages of other cultures. Here, Carolyn “Jubulile” White recounts her upbringing in the Sea Islands off the shore of South Carolina and her school years in Charleston. As a storyteller, she stresses the importance of speaking in her native Gullah tongue without shame for its past consideration as “improper” English, “Everyone should be proud of a history, their history, their culture. Everyone else, you know, wanted to be known. So, why not us?”
