Date grant awarded: November 24, 2016

The historic city of Richmond, Virginia, once the capital of the Confederacy, still has many monuments to Civil War figures, but few public monuments to commemorate its valuable African American history. Jennida Chase and Hassan Pitts are bringing an interactive, cross-platform, site-specific documentary highlighting these people and their stories through their project, Richmond Reclamation Project. Using a mobile augmented-reality application, users will be able to stand in the present while accessing memories of that location from another era.
