Conversation: How to Make it in Black America

How to Make it in Black America is a meditation on the history of race relations and our current state of affairs in these United States of America. It features original poetry by spoken word artists Saroya Marsh and Modesto ‘Flako’ Jimenez interwoven with historic video and audio and set in a visual art landscape, created afresh each night by Bonafide Rojas. Join us and take part in the conversation about where we’ve been, how we got here and where we’re headed.
