About “The Sculpture”
Designer, lead artist, and Anderson native Herman Keith, Jr. has a vision to “take the story to the people” in a powerful way to educate, evoke empathy and inspire movement toward a more just society. He and his team have constructed a world-class exhibit that is traveling throughout Anderson County. This structure, made of wood and metal, is designed in harmony with the art installation in tribute to lynching victims at the Equal Justice Initiative.
The Sculpture will be in residence at AnMed through early September. Other engagement opportunities will be announced.
About the AAR&RI:
In early 2020, a group of community members in Anderson County, South Carolina formed the Anderson Area Remembrance and Reconciliation Initiative (AAR&RI). The goal of the initiative is to honor the five known victims of racial terror lynching in Anderson County by reflecting more honestly on the history and legacy of racial and economic injustice. AAR&RI is working in partnership with the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI), headquartered in Montgomery, Alabama, to raise awareness and inspire action through dialogue, community education, and public memorials to eliminate health and social disparities and move us toward the goal of a “Beloved Community” for all.
