On April 12, the Hannibal Square Heritage Center unveiled 17 new portraits and living histories of their most senior residents – now in their 80s and 90s – who are natives or longtime residents of the African American west side Winter Park community. The oral interviews were gathered by Heritage Center Historians Fairolyn Livingston and Mary Daniels, both longtime residents. The portraits of these elders were captured by documentary photographer Peter Schreyer.

Adding to the existing Sage Project permanent collection that dates back to 2012, “These histories, however personal, have a familiarity that resonates with residents of African American communities around the country,” explains Heritage Center Chief Historian Livingston.

This exhibit is free and open to the public:
Tues. – Thurs. noon – 4pm
Fri. noon – 5pm
Sat. 10am – 2pm
