ON THE COVER:
John Trevino, Connecting Communities Through Language, 2010; a painting commissioned
for the exhibition Word, Shout, Song: Lorenzo Dow Turner Connecting Communities through
Language (on view at the Smithsonian’s Anacostia Community Museum).
The painting represents the three cultures that are included in the exhibit. On the left are the
Gullah holding traditional baskets on their heads. In the center are the Brazilian women in the
market and a Capoeira dancer and on the right is a traditional market scene from West Africa. The
sea in the background connects the three cultures since the slaves came to the Americas by sea.
