Louis Massiah and Patricia Zimmerman Present “We Tell” 50 Years of Participatory Community Media: Environments of Race and Place [CANCELED/COVID]

April 22, 2020 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm EDT

Due to COVID rates and concern for community safety, this event has been CANCELED.

Environments of Race and Place zeroes in on issues surrounding immigration, migration, and racial identities unique to specific environments. These works embrace and amplify the micro rather than the macro in scope. They move from the national to the hyperlocal, advocating that understanding conflicts and contradictions can lead to change. Discussions of police brutality in Third World Newsreel’s Black Panther a.k.a. Off the Pig or animations about toxic pollution made by the Indigenous youth media collective, Outta Your Backpack, expand conceptualizations of the range of participatory community media and the varieties of forms environmental media inhabits.

We will be screening a program consisting of six films: Black Panther a.k.a. Off the Pig (Newsreel #19), Black Women, Sexual Politics and the Revolution, Who I Became, Legend of the Weresheep, Stories of TRUST: Calling for Climate Recovery: TRUST Alaska, and Digital Smoke Signals: Aerial Footage from the Night of November 20, 2016 at Standing Rock.
