The Liberation & Education touring showcase was created out of the necessity to develop spaces and opportunities for alternative Black Media to be seen and heard. A primary goal of the tour is to highlight independent voices working within multi-media platforms. The greater purpose of “Liberation & Education 2016” is to provide critical analysis of news, information and events which impact the Black Community experience. Using the tools of documentary film, youth media workshops, and panel/community discussion to enhance a targeted effort to engage more participation and dialogue regarding the stories and issues that shape independent media outlets.
