What are the most important issues facing black males today? This panel discussion responds to an urgent question that a young participant in the Question Bridge: Black Males exhibition posed to an elder: “Why didn’t you leave us a blueprint?” Local community leaders from grassroots groups to government organizations will lead a multigenerational dialogue with the audience on the issues that need to be addressed and the strategies needed to move forward.

A performance by Lyrics From Lockdown and a video excerpt from the exhibition will precede the conversation.

This program is free with Museum admission; reserve your seat at.

Participants and invited guests include:
Chris Johnson, Dr. Khalil Muhammad, Kevin Powell, Bryonn Bain, Kolade Adeyemo Jr., Dr. Gerald Deas, Michael Elam, MDiv, Byron Hurt, Dr. Frederick Harris, Jamel Shabazz, Dr. Divine Pryor, Chris “Kazi” Rolle, and teen and youth leaders.

Question Bridge: Black Males is a fiscally sponsored project of the Bay Area Video Coalition, supported in part by a grant from the Open Society Foundations Campaign for Black Male Achievement, the Tribeca Film Institute, Sundance Film Institute’s New Frontier Story Lab, the LEF Foundation, the Center for Cultural Innovation, and the California College of the Arts. Additional support was provided by the Jack Shainman Gallery.
