An Ode to the Nine Graduates ◦ 2020 ◦ 44 x 120 x 30 inch (h x w x d) ◦ Interactive Sculpture | Wood | Acrylic | LED Light This church pew is a call back to the connection between church and schools in the Black community. The earliest schools founded by Black community members were almost exclusively linked to Baptists, Methodists, and Catholic faiths. It was more than Sunday school and many students sat on church benches of the 19th century before desks had been incorporated into the classroom.
