  1. Winfred Rembert Boxed Notecards

    By Winfred Rembert
    5 x 7 in.
    20 blank notecards (5 each of 4 designs) with envelopes in a decorative box

    Thrumming with music, motion, and saturated color, the four notecards in this boxed set revisit the soda shops and juke joints of artist Winfred Rembert’s youth in the Deep South. Rembert’s visual storytelling is a graphic diary of sorts, capturing the people, places, and experiences significant to him. At age 51, at his wife’s urging, Rembert began carving and painting his life story onto leather. His remarkable body of work speaks to the legacy of slavery, segregation, and racial violence under Jim Crow, and also pays tribute to the poetry of Black life in the South, and the rich tradition of Black struggle, solidarity, and joy.

    Contains five each of the following images:
    Homer Clyde’s Place, 2009
    Soda Shop, 2004
    The Dirty Spoon Cafe, 2002
    Ben Shorter IV, 2010
