Black Brooklyn Renaissance

Black Brooklyn Renaissance

Black Brooklyn Renaissance was a brilliant year-long (February 2010 – February 2011) program featuring performances, exhibitions, symposia and workshops, a conference, an oral history project and an archive. The Brooklyn Arts Council joined forces with artists and organizations across the borough to make Black Brooklyn Renaissance a truly collaborative and holistic endeavor. As part of this project, I conducted many ethnographic interviews with artists and musicians in Brooklyn, and helped with a number of the public programs. Towards the end, though, I got to produce this promotional video to show off and brag about the amazing archive that resulted from the project. It’s full of dynamic primary source material, that is now accessible to the public.
