WW Law Campaign
The WW Law Campaign is a public art awareness campaign in honor of one of Savannah’s greatest heroes: Westley Wallace Law. The campaign focuses on telling the story of W.W. Law in everyday Savannah life, in a city known for its visual and historic storytelling.
The campaign was launched July 29, 2012. W.W. Law’s words were seen on Chatham Area Buses with the phrase: “because a good name is…” The full quote of these words was displayed on building facade banners located at the Ralph Mark Gilbert Civil Rights Museum and the Beach Institute, two institutions founded by W.W. Law to document and preserve African American culture and history.
For over 40 years W.W. Law was a mail carrier in Savannah for the US Postal Service. He delivered a message that forever changed the City of Savannah, bringing unity and liberation to humanity. W.W. Law was honored by the US Postal Service with a special cancellation postmark which was available upon request at the USPS branch located at 2 Fahm Street / Savannah, Ga. 31401.
