US artist creates Egungun style exhibit in homage to “America’s first African American town”

 

The artist ,Lynn Marshall-Linnemeier, created  robes to commemorate the three months she spent living in Eatonville, Florida which is known as “America’s first African-American town”.

She created the robes which closely resemble Yoruba Egungun robes by including  photographs, memorabilia, faces and names of founders and ancestors of Eatonville on to the fabrics. Her robes are meant to be worn by descendants of the founding community.
