Still from The Ancestors Came
Black Radical Imagination is an international touring program of moving image shorts that highlights new stories by filmmakers and visual artists from within the African diaspora. This year’s program, FUGITIVE TRAJECTORIES, meditates on the various ways Black people are tending to their lives despite traumatic histories, both personal and collective, and a troubling present. Black Radical Imagination is co-founded by Erin Christovale and Amir George, and the 2018 program is curated by Jheanelle Brown and Darol Olu Kae. Participating artists include Ephraim Asili, Cecile Emeke, Jenn Nkiru, Amelia Umuhire, Kamau Wainaina, and dana washington.
Curators Jheanelle Brown and Darol Olu Kae will be in conversation with Assistant Curator Jessica Hong.
