BLACK MEMORABILIA

Directed by Chico Colvard
Weeks 1, 2, 3 – Film rental available Friday, July 10 – Thursday, July 30

At the intersections of commerce, racial identity, and historical narrative, BLACK MEMORABILIA follows the propagation of demeaning representations of African Americans. Moving beyond perverse attractions to collectibles and antiques that serve as reminders of America’s troubled racial history, the film combats stereotypes and presents a poetic portrait of the people who consume, manufacture and assume the identities of these objects.
