After dismantling 23 Confederate statues, Devon Henry launches CryptoFederacy NFT art collection to raise $13 million for social causes across the United States
The mastermind hired to meticulously remove Confederate monuments gives new meaning to the 13 stars of the Confederate flag by assigning a charity to each of the “13 stars” NFT Art Collectibles.
RICHMOND, Va., May 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Devon Henry mentioned yes to a job that no other entrepreneur has had the courage to accept. The story of Henry’s role will likely be told in the history books – as the recent front page function of the New York Times. Since 2020, Henry and his construction crews have meticulously and safely removed over 23 Confederate statues in the former Confederate South. Henry is now redirecting this story to charity CryptoFederacy Project which highlights 13 key causes and agents of change via the 13 stars NFT Art Collection which falls on June 16, 2022 at www.CryptoFederacy.com.
“The task of dismantling these statues has been literally monumental,” says Devon Henry, who has faced harassment and even death threats, for answering the call to “re”make history. “It’s very humbling to be the one to fulfill a 131-year-old prophecy. But it’s not enough. I feel responsible for using these deconstructed pieces of our past to build a better future.”
The prophecy to which Henry refers is that of John Mitchell, Jr.the editor of the Black newspaper, The planet Richmond. In 1890, when the statue of Robert E. Lee was erected on Monument Avenue in Richmond Virginia, Mitchell predicted that a black man would one day pull down the statue. “He erected the Lee monument, and when the time comes, he will be there to take it down,” he added. Mitchell wrote.
