Bronx-born artist Abi­gail DeV­ille will con­struct a his­tor­i­cal maze dis­played in vacant store­front spaces in the heart of Ana­cos­tia with col­lected mate­ri­als from a ten-day road trip from DC to Florida in a new work, enti­tled The New Migra­tion. The New Migra­tion will explore the impli­ca­tions of the mass flight and migra­tory return of African Amer­i­cans to the South. In addi­tion to the instal­la­tion, a sun­set pro­ces­sion devised in col­lab­o­ra­tion with stage direc­tor Char­lotte Brath­waite will kick-off the open­ing of the instal­la­tion. The pro­ces­sion will fea­ture a spe­cial col­lec­tion of hand­crafted wear­able sculp­tures cre­ated from recy­cled rem­nants and dis­carded mate­ri­als worn by six per­form­ers com­mem­o­rat­ing the six mil­lion African descen­dants who dared to make the cross­ing known as The Great Migration. The sculp­tures will start at the foot of the Fred­er­ick Dou­glas House and dance, chant, move and sing as spir­its illu­mi­nat­ing the jour­ney – cel­e­brat­ing the deter­mi­na­tion and per­se­ver­ance of these fear­less pioneers. Pro­ces­sion route: Fred­er­ick Dou­glas House down 14th Street across Good Hope Road Ana­cos­tia Arts Center. The pro­ces­sion will cul­mi­nate in a con­cert in front of the store­front instal­la­tions at the Ana­cos­tia Arts Cen­ter fea­tur­ing Greg Tate and Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Cham­ber among others.

Southern trees bear a strange fruit Blood on the leaves and blood at the root Black bodies swingin’ in the Southern breeze Strange fruit hangin’ from the poplar trees
