This is the inception year of The Black Cherry Tree Project. The goal is to use art and community to reintroduce narratives, construct legacy and extend the life of victims of racial terror. This project explores the intersections of community, art and social justice to take form in many ways. The Black Cherry Tree Project invites local artists to create commemorative artworks based on their interpretations while creating community and increased accessibility to each artwork by working with local small businesses. These factors culminate and metamorphosize the project into a new form through the planting of black cherry tree saplings that will extend this conversation transgenerationally and give a newfound legacy to each commemorated victim.
But it takes community to make this possible.
