Our Film-Launch Event
Join us online or by listening live at WPFW 89.3 FM Monday, September, 28, 2020 at 6 p.m. EDT for our film-launch event Art as a Response to Anti-Blackness, a conversation inspired by Interrupted: Prologue to a Mem-noir. Panelists will be jazz-great Bob James, two-time NAACP Image Award-nominated author Marita Golden, and Joseph Lewis, founder of Black Bottom Film Festival and executive director of Jazz Bridge. Lindsey Yancich, gallery manager at Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery will also speak on the art of interdisciplinary-artist Pamela Woolford, who will be on hand.
The online event is free and requires registration using the button below. (You can also listen live at the DC radio station WPFW 89.3 FM "Your Station for Jazz & Justice," which is accessible online, too, or watch on Busboys and Poets Facebook Live.)
Art as a Response to Anti-Blackness is an event in the A.C.T.O.R. series (A Continuing Talk On Race) co-sponsored by Busboys and Poets and the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter School for Peace and Conflict Resolution at George Mason University.
