Jeremiah Day’s performance will reconstruct the early history of the Black Panther Party in Lowndes County. Based on a series of photographs, the artist narrates the historical events and seeks its referance to the present. Day physically fights the historical oblivion and presents Lowndes County as a place full of significance in which local history and global change overlap.
Lowndes County: Prologue is the first part of a serial project by Jeremiah Day about the Lowndes County Freedom Organisation from Alabama, that became the first Black Panther Party.
