Installed in Fort Greene Park in Brooklyn, Preston Riddick, a long time resident, has worked at the intersection of African dance and history, theater and martial arts for nearly 5 decades. He founded the Indoda Entsha Cultural Program in the 70s, serving members of the community for many years. The banner will be installed in Fort Greene Park through 2020.
