Jonathan Green is a contemporary African-American painter best known for his vibrant depictions of Gullah culture, or the descendants of enslaved Africans who settled between northern Florida and North Carolina in the 19th century.
Not only are his works vibrant in color, energy and spirit, there secret messages, memories, metaphors and stories of Black culture hiding in plain sight in his paintings.
Rev. Sherril Willis will lead us in deciphering these hidden things and inviting you to engage with them through your own writing and shared conversation.
You need not be a writer in any way. Your curiosity will be more than enough.
Cost: $15-25+ Venmo, Paypal, check or cash are available.
