Icons, Memory and Monuments: A conversation about collaborative memory work around resistance movement with the creators of I Am Queen Mary and All Power To The People Project

Date: Sunday, September 26, 2021

Time: 9am PDT/ 12pm AST/ 6pm CEST

Get your free ticket here


On Sunday we will host a conversation between the creators of I Am Queen Mary, La Vaughn Belle and Jeannette Ehlers, and the founders of All Power To The People Project, Fredrika Newton and Rachel Konte.

I Am Queen Mary is a transnational collaborative public art project that honors the legacy of those who survived and fought against Danish colonialsim and slavery in the Caribbean. The pose of the figure Queen Mary is inspired by the iconic image of Huey P. Newton, leader of the Black Panther Party, in which he sits in a peacock chair with a spear and rifle in either hand. His widow Frederika Newton and designer Rachel Konte co-own the brand All Power To The People Project. They aim to inspire and empower each generation by creating products that communicate the history and global impact of the Black Panther Party. In alignment with that mission they have created a partnership with I Am Queen Mary as they raise money to complete their public art project. This conversation will discuss their combined and distinct collaborations. 

Please join us for this conversation that takes place within 3 different time zones!

Time: 9am PDT/ 12pm AST/ 6pm CEST
