(February 7th, 2018) After two years in the making, award winning Director Korey Green and Executive Producer Peter Johnson will premiere “The Blackness Project”. The event takes place at the Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Auditorium inside the Burchfield Penney Art Center this Friday at 7:30 PM.
Johnson and Green set out to create a feature length documentary film about culture and race from the African American and other minority perspectives. The film was inspired from conversations about the “Whiteness Project” which is a similar documentary discussing race and the perceived loss of white privilege of white Americans. The main purpose of The Blackness Project film is to bridge the gap between white and black Americans with in depth interviews on race.
