Special Thanks

These pillars are the product of a community.

To all the collaborators that made these pillars come to life. Thank you for the love and energy that you placed into telling these stories with me:

Chris Cowley, Director of Fabrication I loved getting to know you this way; Tonya Lewis, Project Manager and dear friend; Andrew Ferrin @ Ferris Iron Works; To all my makers at Make Nashville that gave us advice on how to do this; to William Kaluna for teaching me how to use a chain saw; to my partners at Amazon; Gresham Smith; to the City of Nashville; And to my family that let me work on this during family time especially my wife Ashley that pretty much helps me with everything in my life - all these people came together so these power stories could be told. This is Sankofa.
