The notion of the Black Radica l Imagination stemmed from a series of discussions around the boundaries an d limitations that are historically given to people of color. Specifically\ , in the film industry these restrictions are often digested and kept to pr opel a vicious cycle of negative identification. Each artist in this series contributes their own vision of a free changing world in a post-modern soc iety through focused observations that explore the state of black culture. The screening will conclude with a roundabout dialogue with audience member s and featured filmmakers to further ponder and process the stories that ar e being presented. Furthermore\, these conversations are set in place in or der to shift the way in which black identity is defined on screen and how t hese stories affect the ever-changing global culture. \; \; \;< /p> DTEND:20130809T220000 DTSTAMP:20140922T150433 DTSTART:20130809T183000 GEO:29.751399;-95.391741 LOCATION:Art League Houston\,1953 Montrose Blvd \nHouston\, Texas 77006 SEQUENCE:0 SUMMARY:Black Radical Imagination\, Adebukola Bodunrin\, Ezra Clayton Danie ls\, Anansi Knowbody\, Cristina De Middel\, Akosua Adoma Owusu\, Jacolby Sa tterwhite\, Cauleen Smith UID:289225 END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
