Cristin Tierney Gallery presents Dread Scott’s first solo gallery exhibition in 20 years entitled We’re Going to End Slavery. The exhibition features large-scale performance stills and flags from the artist’s 2019 community-engaged performance project Slave Rebellion Reenactment.

In November 2019, hundreds of Black reenactors in period attire retraced the 24-mile path of the German Coast Uprising of 1811, the largest rebellion of enslaved people in American history. The procession marched through the River Parishes upriver from New Orleans and concluded in the city ending in Congo Square, a location instrumental to preserving African culture in the United States. Envisioned and organized by Scott, Slave Rebellion Reenactment embodied a story of resistance, freedom and revolutionary action.
