Question Bridge: Black Males
September 19, 2014 to January 3, 2015
Question Bridge is an innovative transmedia project that facilitates a dialogue between a critical mass of black men from diverse and contending backgrounds: and creates a platform for them to represent and redefine black male identity in America.
The process is straightforward: on video, a black man poses a question to another man they feel estranged from. A black man representing that difference records his answer. These exchanges create a Question Bridge, a media-based forum for necessary, honest expression and healing dialogue on themes that divide, unite, and puzzle black males in the United States. The project powerfully exposes the incredible diversity of thought, character, and identity within the black American male demographic, breaking the traditional view of a monolithic identity. The vulnerability and generosity of participants produce complex, whole, and authentic images of black men not commonly available in American media.
The project’s multi-platform approach has four integrated components: art, education, community engagement, and digital media.
