Living history is showcased at the Coconut Grove Historical Museum with the photo exhibit titled “Martin’s Footprints: Marches in Coconut Grove & Goulds” on Sept. 19th. The Award-Winning Documentary Photographer from Goulds, Symone Titania Major-Ferguson, celebrates community leaders in the closing of her John S. & James L. Knight Foundation’s 2021 Knight Arts Challenge Award-Winning photo exhibit.
Symone Titania Major-Ferguson is an African-American award-winning documentary photographer, choreographer, poet and community activist based in Goulds, Florida.
Her black and white photography collection documents the duality of two historical marches that took place in Miami during the COVID-19 pandemic. The first march was held in Coconut Grove as a protest against police brutality and the second march was held in Goulds, a South Dade neighborhood, as a protest to stop gun violence in the community.
The event will take place this Saturday from 4:00pm-7:00pm. Symone Titania will close out her exhibition at the Coconut Grove Historical Museum in a community celebration with food, wine, poetry, and live music presented by Context of a Generation.
A photo from the collection was selected as a movie poster in Miami’s native filmmaker, Samuel Lee Fudge’s, new film, “38” which premiers at The Urban Film Festival on Sunday Sept. 4th.
