Part of M&T Second Friday

Friday, February 9, 2018, 7:30 pm

Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Auditorium  

The Blackness Project, created by award winning film producer, Korey Green, seeks to rewrite America's racial narrative. The film is a featured length educational documentary about culture and race from the African American perspective. Although inspired from conversations about the Whiteness Project, a documentary in which participants discuss race and the perceived loss of white privilege by white Americans, The Blackness Project goal is to educate, elevate, and engage Americans in an effort to bridge the racial divide in our country by creating a meaningful dialogue on race.

“With this film we have a desire to share voices that may not have been heard, to elevate the power of inclusion and encourage serious conversations. It is important to know that we do not seek to divide with this project, but to encourage serious conversations that lead to community led solutions," stated Director Korey Green, and Executive Producer Peter Johnson.

Tickets are $10 / $5 for Burchfield Penney members. Call 716-878-6011 during gallery hours for info.
