'Revision Suite' at St. Augustine's Episcopal Church

St Augustine of Hipp Episcopal Church

286-290 Henry Street
New York, NY 10002
Manhattan

In Revision Suite, a group of artists including Geng, Salome Asega, Rena Anakwe, Destiny Be, DeForrest Brown Jr, L'Rain, and Stacy Lynn Smith convene at St Augustine's Episcopal Church to meditate on the architectural history of "slave galleries" and explore their own connections to worship and spiritual labor.

The St. Augustine's Project is an unprecedented non profit initiative of St. Augustine's Episcopal Church that researches, preserves, and interprets the "slave galleries," or the upper level of the sanctuary where enslaved people and free people of color were forced to worship segregated from the white congregation. The St. Augustine's Project has led the effort to raise funds to renovate and educate publics about the "slave galleries," 19th century life on the Lower East Side, and the legacy of its African American communities. The St. Augustine's Project is committed to making these spaces available to the public for visits and reflection.
