An evening of film and discussion with special guests in tribute to the art and activism of Camille Billops and James V. Hatch. Camille, a Black visual artist and filmmaker, has worked with her husband Jim for over 50 years to make viscerally affecting films about her life and family which demand a consideration for the meaning of art, black art, and how art can be used as a tool to promote individual as well as collective cultural awareness, pride, and activism. Billops and Hatch's works reflect social, economic and political issues that are relevant and controversial, adressing the roles of women, family culture, art, race and racism.
Presented in partnership with Third World Newsreel.
This event is supported in part by a Humanities New York Action Grant and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
