BlackFace: An Important Discussion For The Masses

neighborsflyerthree

Intro for a special news documentary feature on the Brandon Jacobs-Jenkings theater stage play that traveled the country years before the controversial hip hop battle between Drake & Pusha T. Jamil Jude walks viewers through a journey where black actors used the artistic expression of performing in blackface, telling a story of internal family struggles of black identity and class. A challenging use of social and political critique through the lens of theater asks multiple questions similar to other classic projects like Spike Lee’s movie “Bamboozled” & Little Brother’s “Minstrel Show” album.
