Evening With Artist Dread Scott: Creator of Slave Rebellion Reenactment

On November 8 and 9, 2019, hundreds of re-enactors retraced the path of the largest rebellion of enslaved people in United States history, embodying a story of resistance, freedom and revolutionary action. This was the German Coast Uprising of 1811, which took place in the river parishes just outside of New Orleans.

Dread Scott will tell and illustrate the story of this tremendous artwork, and discuss its significance with Andy Zee.

“Slave Rebellion Reenactment” was recently named by @ArtNet as one of “The 100 Works of Art That Defined the Decade.”

Dread Scott is the artist and creator of “Slave Rebellion Reenactment.”

Andy Zee is the spokesperson for Revolution Books.
