About The Post

It all traces back to Jesse Foster's mother, who used to sneak out of Parker High School in Birmingham, Alabama, to attend the rallies led by Martin Luther King Jr. During these marches, photographs captured the water hoses used to disperse the demonstrators. Foster mentioned that a photograph of his mother is displayed in a Washington, D.C., museum. "There's a picture of my mother wrapped around a post, holding on while being sprayed down," Foster said. "My sisters and I all agree that none of our achievements would have been possible without that post." Now, The Post, a bar named in honor of Foster's mother, features posts that are used to share stories of various artists.
