“Since inception, our Gallery has strived to curate a program that is both a reflection of and an international voice for the local and national culture. This season closing party is just another great opportunity to celebrate our mission and to support an important community cause,” stated Karla Ferguson Soimaud, Esq., gallery director.

BlackFreedom documents the Civil Rights Movement in Miami and prominently features a tribute to the last hours of Jumbo’s Restaurant, an indelible symbol of the end of Jim Crow in America. Highlighting the urgent contemporary relevance of the exhibit, Ferguson continues: “Tragedies like the killing of Michael Brown and its aftermath indicate that the nation is facing a crisis of racial and socioeconomic disorder. And it’s not just a ‘black problem’, it’s everyone’s problem. Jerome’s searing, unforgettable work speaks directly to this mounting division and offers an opportunity for deep, healing, reflection, and a continuation of activism.”
