Celebrating the depth and breadth of Black history, culture, and aesthetics, Red Rooster Overtown is proud to present the Legacy Collection, a world-class collection of modern & contemporary artwork from 15 artists worldwide. Housed in the former, Clyde Killens Pool Hall building — a historic site known to host icons such as Muhammed Ali, Aretha Franklin, and Count Basie — Red Rooster partners thoughtfully curated artwork ranging in genre & media to echo the spirit of Miami’s vibrant & diverse Black population, unique history, and bold style. The Legacy art collection blends a tapestry of narratives, colors, and textures to offer a multi-sensory experience that bridges Overtown’s rich cultural narrative, featuring Overtown’s own, Purvis Young, and linking through time to contemporary art masters like Theaster Gates & Kara Walker.

While dining and socializing with us, we encourage you to scan the QR code on your table and take a visual walk-through of the Legacy Collection at Red Rooster Overtown.

Jamea Richmond-Edwards

A wonderful thing about Jamea Richmond-Edwards and her work is that she believes in a shared experience, a cultural experience, and an emotional experience that everyone on earth can relate to. She believes that no one is totally Black or White, Asian or Latin, gay or straight, that a little bit of everyone lives inside all of us and portrays that in the paintings. Her shimmering collages are an investigation into her family’s story and diverse history dating back to the 18th century in America. Jamea Richmond-Edwards was born in the 1980s in Detroit and decided to attend Howard University for graduate school and has lived and worked in the D.C. area ever since.
