Tuesday on The Bridge, we got to sit down with Savannah treasure, Chef Joe Randall, who is being honored by the Smithsonian’s new National Museum of African American History and Culture.
Today, we get to celebrate another amazing Savannahian joining those ranks.
The late William Pleasant, Jr. made his mark on Savannah- painting some of the most well known signs in our community and documenting history. But he was also gifted in fine art. This weekend his painting “The Huckster” is being unveiled at the center of the museums new ‘Cultural Expressions’ exhibit.
His sons, Jalal and David, join us to talk about their father’s life work and legacy.
