Question Bridge is an innovative transmedia project led by artists Hank Willis Thomas, Chris Johnson, Bayeté Ross Smith, and Kamal Sinclair, and produced by art world luminaries Deborah Willis and Delroy Lindo and actor/activist Jesse Williams. The video installation, book, and website facilitates a dialogue between a critical mass of black men from all different backgrounds. Come and hear how this project creates a platform to represent and redefine black male identity in America.
Bayeté Ross Smith will moderate an evening of dialogue between different generations of Black men from diverse and contending backgrounds that have taken part in the Question Bridge project thus far. The audience will then take part in the panel and ask questions.
