“how the Other 1/2 lived” at St. Augustine’s Episcopal Church

denzel russell utilizes light as a language to interrogate the history of St. Augustine’s Episcopal Church and its “slave galleries.” The installation reflects on marginalization in order to understand the lives of the 19th century Black New Yorkers who were relegated to the galleries, and calls for publics to approach these spaces with reverence and appreciation for the spirits who occupy it.
