Now Recruiting for a Black History Month Project: TRANS-RACE
A collaboration with visual artist David Sandford. (http://davidsandford.com)
I’m looking for persons of Black ancestry, mixed-race individuals, people in mix-Race relationships (of any duration: “from 2 minutes to 2 or more decades”), members of mixed-race families—blended, by birth, or by choosing, and trans (gendered) individuals of any ancestry.
I want to ask a few questions and perhaps have you pose for a portrait. There may be compensation for individuals chosen for a full interview.
If you can devote a few minutes to this project—and want to help promote understanding and acceptance, please email me:firstname.lastname@example.org
Also looking for spoken word and performance artists who have something to say on the themes above.
The Opposite of Innocence: A dramatized reading. Writer/Director: Roger Blenman
Teenaged Garret, Michael, and Katherine have created a space for themselves in a world they nearly despise. The balance of their love and friendship is upset when they lure lonely, naïve Randy into their circle. Repressed sexuality emerges and violence surfaces.
