FILM SCREENING and DISCUSSION | Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone

Thursday February 2, 2012

6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us for a FREE screening and panel discussion of the film, EVERYDAY SUNSHINE: THE STORY OF FISHBONE, a documentary about the musical group Fishbone and the social and cultural forces that gave rise to this pioneering Black punk rock band from South Central-Los Angeles. From the shifting faultlines of Hollywood fantasies and the economic and racial tensions of Reagan's America, Fishbone rose to become one of the most original bands of the last 25 years. With a blistering combination of punk and funk they demolished the walls of genre and challenged the racial stereotypes and political order of the music industry and the nation. Telling it like it is, the iconic Laurence Fishburne narrates EVERYDAY SUNSHINE, a story about music, history, fear, courage and funking on the one.

Post-screening discussion with Fishbone's frontman Angelo Moore, filmmakers, Lev Anderson and Chris Metzler, and cultural critic, Jeff Chang, along with a spoken word musical performance by Angelo's alter ego Dr. Madd Vibe.

Angelo Moore (Musician/Poet/Satirist/Performance Artist) began his career in the early l980s as lead singer, saxophonist, and creative force behind the legendary band, Fishbone.  Fishbone’s ability to blend social commentary and humor with a blazing fusion of rock, punk, funk, jazz, ska, reggae, gospel and R&B led to their recognition as one of the most notable acts in American music. A versatile artist, Angelo also performs under the guise of his wildly energetic alter ego, Dr. Madd Vibe. Linking poetry, performance and music, this visceral artist’s solo performances range from pure spoken word and movement to playing the Theremin and various saxophones as well as reciting poetry accompanied by the Dr. Madd Vibe Aukestra. 
 
After graduating from Beloit College, and taking just five years to design the cities of the future, Lev Anderson (co-director, co-producer) left the bureaucracy of Urban Planning and jumped feet first into filmmaking. As a fine art photographer with works exhibited in San Francisco, Japan, and Mexico City, he has honed his unique perspective to create dynamic images with a sharp eye for finding contradiction and beauty where least expected. 

Chris Metzler's (co-director, co-producer) feature length directorial debut was the offbeat environmental documentary, PLAGUES & PLEASURES ON THE SALTON SEA, which was narrated by legendary counterculture filmmaker and "King of Trash" John Waters. A cult favorite, the film was released theatrically in the United States and broadcast nationally on the Sundance Channel.   

Jeff Chang has written extensively on culture, politics, the arts, and music. He is currently the Executive Director of the Institute for Diversity in the Arts + Committee on Black Performing Arts at Stanford University.
 
This event is made possible with the generous support of the California Council for the Humanities

COLLECTOR'S TALK | Exhibiting Blackness with Dr. Bridget Cooks

Friday February 3, 2012

6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

In this program, Dr. Bridget Cooks will present research from her book Exhibiting Blackness: African Americans and the American Art Museum. In 1927, the Chicago Art Institute presented the first major museum exhibition of art by African Americans. Designed to demonstrate the artists’ abilities and to promote racial equality, the exhibition also revealed the art world’s anxieties about the participation of African Americans in the exclusive venue of art museums—places where Blacks had historically been barred from visiting let alone exhibiting. Since then, American’s major art museums have served as crucial locations for African Americans to protest against their exclusion and attest to their contributions in the visual arts. By  examining the unequal and often contested relationship between African American artists, curators, and visitors, she provides insight into the complex role of art museums and their accountability to the cultures they represent.

Bridget R. Cooks, PhD is Associate Professor of Art History and African American Studies at the University of California, Irvine. Her scholarship addresses representations of African Americans in visual culture, the history of African American artists, and museum criticism. She curated the critically acclaimed exhibition The Art of Richard Mayhew at the Museum of the African Diaspora, San Francisco in 2009.

The Obama presidency represents a major milestone in black history and the struggle for political, economic and cultural equality in the United States. But how--if at all--has the first black presidency helped move things forward for people of color?

Redefining Black Power’s editor, international journalist, Joanne Griffith joins us to discuss the project and the importance of the preservation of the African American voice in this ‘Age of Obama’.

Joanne Griffith is an award winning international broadcast journalist who has reported, produced and hosted programs for the British Broadcasting Corporation, National Public Radio and the Pacifica Radio Network.

Now based in Los Angeles, Joanne hosts a weekly radio program based on the historic audio held in the Pacifica Radio Archives for BBC Radio.

This program is co-presented by Museum of the African Diaspora and City Lights Publishers.

AUTHORS IN CONVERSATION | Harlem is Nowhere with Sharifa Rhodes-Pitts

Sunday February 12, 2012

2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

For a century Harlem has been celebrated as the capital of black America, a thriving center of cultural achievement and political action. At a crucial moment in Harlem’s history, as gentrification encroaches, Sharifa Rhodes-Pitts in her first book, Harlem is Nowhere: A Journey to the Mecca of Black America, untangles the myth and meaning of Harlem’s legacy. Examining the epic Harlem of official history and the personal Harlem that begins at her front door, Rhodes-Pitts introduces us to a wide variety of characters, past and present. At the heart of their stories, and her own, is the hope carried over many generations, hope that Harlem would be the ground from which blacks fully entered America’s democracy. Ms. Rhodes-Pitts will be in conversation with community activist Alicia Garza.

Sharifa Rhodes-Pitts is a brilliant new voice who, like other significant chroniclers of places-Joan Didion on California, or Jamaica Kincaid on Antigua-captures the very essence of her subject.

Alicia Garza is currently the co-executive director at People Organized to Win Employment Rights (POWER) in San Francisco. For nearly ten years she has been helping to build people‘s power in working class communities of color in the Bay Area and abroad.

AUTHORS IN CONVERSATION | Black Cool: The Language of Survival with Rebecca Walker

Sunday February 19, 2012

2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Black Cool: One Thousand Streams of Blackness, edited by Rebecca Walker with a forward by Henry Louis Gates, Jr., explores the ineffable state and aesthetic of Black Cool. From the effortless reserve of Miles Davis in khakis on an early album cover, to the shock of resistance in black women’s fashion from Angela Davis to Rihanna, to the cadence of poets as diverse as Staceyann Chin and Audre Lorde, Black Cool looks at the roots of Black Cool and attempts to name elements of the phenomena that have emerged to shape the global expectation of cool itself. Buoyed by some of America’s most innovative thinkers on the subject—graphic novelist Mat Johnson, Brown University Professor of African Studies Tricia Rose, critical thinking and cultural icon bell hooks, Macarthur winner Kara Walker, and many more—the book is at once a handbook, a map, a journey into the matrix of another cosmology. It’s a literal periodic table of cool, wherein each writer names and defines their element of choice. Dream Hampton writes about Audacity. Helena Andrews about Reserve, Margo Jefferson on Eccentricity, Veronica Chambers on Genius, and so on. With a foreword by Henry Louis Gates that bridges historical African elements of cool with the path laid out for the future, Black Cool offers a provocative perspective on this powerful cultural legacy.

Rebecca Walker has forged a successful career as a writer, activist, and leading American advocate for women's issues. Author of the best-selling Black, White, and Jewish: Autobiography of a Shifting Self, Walker has written extensively on race, gender politics, and the changing face of contemporary American feminism.

Moon Over Harlem (1939)

When Bill tries to seduce the young girl right under Minnie’s nose, the love-struck mother wrongly blames her daughter. Cinematic auteur Edgar G. Ulmer shot Moon Over Harlem in just four days with an ultra-low budget. Despite these limitations, Ulmer brings a distinctive style and a broad range of themes to the film, which is generally regarded as one of the best of the genre.
