    Hi. I work at SPACES archives (www.spacesarchives.org) and we’re trying to identify the artist who created the small yard show that you have labeled as folk art in dedication to the African-American community of Sandfly. Might you be able to provide any further information? Thanks so much! Jo Farb Hernandez

      I would like to help you, but I don’t know myself who the artist is. I assume he or she lives in the house behind the display, which is right off a main road in Savannah. It’s close to where I live. The display has changed over the years. I’ll try to find out for you.

        Hey, thanks, that’d be fabulous! Any info you can find out about the artist(s) would be great. I do have a photo of the artist (one of the artists?) but don’t know who it is. If you send me your email, i can send it to you. I’m jfh@cruzio.com.
        Incidentally, I also heard about the Black Holocaust Memorial…near there, maybe? Do you know anything about that as well?
        Thanks so much!!!!
