Artist DREAD SCOTT in conversation with ANDY ZEE


On November 8 and 9, 2019, hundreds of re-enactors retraced the path of the largest rebellion of enslaved people in United States history, embodying a story of resistance, freedom and revolutionary action. This was the German Coast Uprising of 1811, which took place in the river parishes just outside of New Orleans.

In this video of the recent event held at Revolution Books in Harlem, Dread Scott tells and illustrates the story of this tremendous artwork, and discuss its significance with Andy Zee.
