My Black Body IS

How does it feel to inhabit a body that is revered, detested, over-sexualized, ridiculed, fetishized, profaned, killed? Commissioned by Gablestage, My Black Body is an interdisciplinary short film, using song, spoken word, and photography to amplify narratives of what it means to walk through life in a body that is black. Black art song and original music provide the foundation to create this performance of celebration & reclamation of blackness that is part concert, part spoken word, and wholly theatrical.
