Odili Donald Odita flags at Prospect.4 in New Orleans

African-born, Philadelphia-raised artist Odili Donald Odita created a series of flags for an installation that was part of Prospect.4 The Lotus in Spite of the Swamp.  Emblazoned with his signature geometric design and saturated colors these flags proudly flew over sites of significance for enslaved Africans and, later, civil rights struggles.

There were a couple of sites that did not have flags displayed when I tried to photograph them. Below are Dooky Chase and Sportsman's Corner.  The other site was Dillard University.
