Legacy. Photographs by Anthony McFarlane Open when the museum is open 2023 Exploring the Legacy of Jah Messiah, Esquire Sound System and the legacy of Sue Brown, distinguished writer and poet. “Together, sound systems and the spoken word became conduits for cultural preservation and progress, empowering the new established community of black descendants. They fostered a sense of pride in their heritage and a strong sense of community identity. As this legacy continues, the third generation inherits a resilient spirit, well-equipped to overcome obstacles and propel forward, honoring their past while shaping a brighter future”.
Free entry. Open when the WMAG is open.
