RECLAIMING BLACKSPACE. Marcia Smith, Documentary Filmmaker, Firelight Media, NY, had an idea. To celebrate a town where her parents are buried. It was a simple idea - take an existing house and magnify the town’s African American history during H’COLA’s 17th African-American History Festival, held February 2020.
The Pop-Up History Museum is a multi-disciplinary collaboration for a long-term vision. - Andrew Chin, Asst Dean, FAMU Architectue - Dr. Reginald K. Ellis, Asso Prof, FAMU History and African-Amer. Studies. - Dr. Dreamal Worthen, FAMU Agriculture and Food Sci. - Myrtis Wynn - Rhodes + other families.
Colleagues: -Ashon Nesbitt (Real Est. and Urban Planning) -Dr. C.L. Bohannon (Landscape Arch.) -blinkLAB architecture was one of several design professionals invited to visit and write a response. Now back in Oakland, CA, we found looking at photos was simply not effective at re-calling the feelings and conversations as a singular experience. So we created a 3D engagement archive.
