FEBRUARY 2014 at the SALON

Uprise: Raising Black Men
presented by Thomas Poole
Tom Poole screens his video project based on the theatrical production "Testimony" which was written by former AWC (Armed with a Camera) Fellow Dr. Tameka Cage Conley and staged at the August Wilson Center in 2011. The inspiration and impetus of the play comes from interviews and story circles involving African American Men of Pittsburgh. The DVD brings to light the creative process that went into the production while exploring the myriad of issues that black men are grappling with and experiencing on a daily basis.

Tom will show four selections from the DVD, plus credits:

  • Creative Process
  • Generations
  • I AM A MAN
  • Black Male Experience
Monday, February 24  6:30p
