Antebellum believes when a person passes this is when their legacy begins.
Whatever they accomplished in their life now becomes immortalized. Initially in the eulogy and obituary. Later, if they are famous, in books, films and lectures.
Antebellum has taken on the tradition of honoring artists on the day of their death.
We feel this is when their history, legacy & lore begins. It is their second & permanent life.
Today, Antebellum is honoring the life of TOM OF FINLAND on the 20-year anniversary of his passing – November 7TH.
