Rest With Honor Savannah is a historical social justice initiative. In Savannah, Georgia African Burial Grounds were redesigned as two public squares; renamed Whitefield Square and Calhoun Square. The latter in honor of John C. Calhoun, the former Vice President of the United States. Calhoun was fiercely pro-slavery and his philosophy and essays about white supremacy were the leading voice supporting terrorism and oppression against Black and indigenous people in America. His views became the foundation for the American Civil War.

Our goal is to have the City of Savannah:
1. Rename Calhoun Square.
2. Officially recognize Calhoun Square and Whitefield Square as African burial grounds.
3. Place official historical markers and memorials in both of the squares.

The Flag Exhibition
From 1995 to 2007 I traveled around the world photographing and interviewing people with the American flag. Through each person’s photographs and hand-written statements about America, the viewer becomes aware of the beauty, inequity and hope that have created the American cultural fabric. The culmination of my work are the two books and multimedia projects 'Flag: An American Story' and 'Flag International'.

The Flag exhibition consists of:
(40) framed color digital archival prints (20 x 24" 50.8 x 60.96 cm), text panels, audio interviews, and a short documentary film.

This exhibition is available for touring.
