BLACK GIRL: Linguistic Play reveals the complexity of carving out a self-defined identity as a Black female in urban American culture. In a society where Black women are often only portrayed in terms of their strength, resiliency, or trauma, this work seeks to interrogate these narratives by representing a nuanced spectrum of Black womanhood in a racially and politically charged world. With original music compositions (live music by pianist, Scott Patterson and electric bassist, Tracy Wormworth), Camille A. Brown uses the rhythmic play of African-American dance vernacular including social dancing, double dutch, steppin’, tap, Juba, ring shout, and gesture as the Black woman’s domain to evoke childhood memories of self-discovery.   World Premiere performances of BLACK GIRL: Linguistic Play begin on September 22, 2015 at the Joyce Theater.

'Collaborations' is the second documentary film by director Oliver Hardt on the work of British-Ghanaian architect David Adjaye. The film features interviews with Adjaye’s collaborators, a roster of influential figures in the art and cultural world, and examines a significant number of his architectural projects, including public buildings, residential houses, artist studios and exhibition spaces globally situated and developed over the past fifteen years.  In this clip artist Lorna Simpson leads viewers of a tour of the Brooklyn Studio that Adjaye designed with the artist.

'They are a rainbow tribe: black, Asian, white, biracial. And every eye is trained on the large man in the middle of the pool. Conrad Cooper has been teaching little kids (and some adults) to swim for 20 years now. His business, Swim to Me, operates out of his pool in the View Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. He has taught kids who scream with fright at being put in the water, and adults who never thought they'd ever be able to swim.' -- +NPR

Years before I knew who Jurgen Habermas was, or was introduced to the concept of a Black public sphere, or could wrap my head around a global Black Diaspora connected across a micro-blogging platform called Twitter, the very spirit of #BlackTwitter could be found on that stoop, in front of 1231 Fulton Avenue, and many such stoops across Black America.

A very great writer and thinker...He will be moving to Paris in a few weeks. From there i know he will be able to write even greater work(s); and hopefully have some relief from the cooker that is the pot in the wilderness of United States of North America.

'Theaster Gates, a potter by training and a social activist by calling, wanted to do something about the sorry state of his neighborhood on the south side of Chicago. So he did, transforming abandoned buildings to create community hubs that connect and inspire those who still live there (and draw in those who don't). Gates describes his efforts to build a "miniature Versailles" in Chicago, and he shares his fervent belief that culture can be a catalyst for social transformation in any city.' -- TED
