The Legacy of Dr. George W. Kennard

704 & 706 Ensor Street (across from the #DunbarAthleticField)

Whenever I can lend a hand to help others out, it gives me a great deal of joy. But today, I'm lending a leg (a historic prosthetic leg, not my own ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚) to assist my good friend and colleague #RebeccaHoffberger with her final exhibit at the award winning, world famous American Visionary Art Museum.

The exhibit is titled, "Healing & The Art of Compassion (And the Lack Thereof!),โ€ scheduled for October 9, 2021, to September 4, 2022. It will focus on the twin forces for creating โ€œgreater goodโ€ in society, healing and compassion.

The photograph of Dr. Kennard and the prosthetic leg will be a part of this groundbreaking exhibit.

Nanny Jack & Co, LLC contains the country's largest archive of Kennard's medical books, ephemera, three dimensional items, photographs, and research concerning Dr. George Whittington Kennard and his legacy as a pastor, medical doctor, spiritual healer, educator, Mason, and visionary.

Doctors on staff at Kennard's hospital, Dr. Fenton Horton (pastor of Christ Institute in the 90s who donated many

items to the Nanny Jack & Co Archives) and yours truly are from Old West Baltimore.
