Friday, May 5 -- Cape May County

Black Footprints on White Sand

Save the Date! This illuminating presentation will take place on Friday, May 5 at the Cape May Stage.

Presented by Cape May MAC and hosted by Cape May Stage, "Black Footprints on White Sand" is an eye-opening presentation given by activist Chase Jackson. During the Jim Crow era, the very idea of African Americans enjoying leisure spaces alongside whites was a challenge because it implied equality. Out of necessity, African American activists and businesspeople created their own beach communities. “Black Footprints on White Sands: Historical African American Beaches and Resorts” explores the past and provides an update on where the imprints touch down now and why.

Alongside this presentation, two works by local artist Chanelle René will be displayed and for sale at this event. The two paintings are part of René's "Grant Street Beach" Series, which depicts the segregated beach of Cape May, New Jersey. Working from René's own family photographs and those of other Black families, these works depict joyful everyday moments of African American beachgoers in Cape May, from the 1920s through the 1960s. Each work explores the complexity and nuance of the human spirit while celebrating generations of Black beachgoers as they transition from segregation to making Grant Street Beach a tradition of choice.

About the Presenter: Chase Jackson is an arts administrator and a community arts activist, serving as the Executive Director of the Ocean City Arts Center. She is an accomplished storyteller, producer, director, actor, and blues belter. She is on the steering committee of the Creating Change Network, a program hosted by New Jersey Theatre Alliance and ArtPride New Jersey that aims to build a more equitable, just, and anti-racist arts community in New Jersey.


This lecture will take place on Friday, May 5, at 7 p.m. and will be hosted by Cape May Stage. Tickets are available here.

The Still Family Saga: Seeking Freedom exhibit by Mark Priest on view at The American Labor Museum

Mark Priest's exhibition focuses on the Underground Railroad. William Still, well-known abolitionist and writer of firsthand narratives of freedom seekers, was in his office writing the account of a man named Peter. This man purchased his freedom after enduring 49 years as a slave. As he told his story, William Still realized, to his amazement, that they were brothers. This body of work contains drawings and paintings that depict the arduous journey to freedom for Peter Still and his family.

In one exhibited painting entitled Sydney's Choice, an enslaved woman named Sydney Still is depicted. She was forced by the owner of Edmonson's Reserve to escape to freedom. She had to choose between saving from enslavement either her two young sons or her two little daughters.

Mark Priest is a narrative painter and draughtsman who has developed multiple series of bold, vivid, and dramatic works of art. He has exhibited widely and currently teaches fine art at the University of Louisville. Learn more about Mark Priest’s art work by visiting:
