Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays Through October 12th: ‘Funk, God, Jazz, and Medicine: Black Radical Brooklyn’

    Date: 10/05/2014

    Time: All Day

    Location: Weeksville Heritage Center (150 Buffalo Ave., Brooklyn)

    Creative Time and Weeksville Heritage Center present Funk, God, Jazz, and Medicine: Black Radical Brooklyn, a walkable month-long art exhibition of four community-based art commissions by Xenobia Bailey, Simone Leigh, Otabenga Jones & Associates, and Bradford Young. Black Radical Brooklyn launches from the site of Weeksville, a Brooklyn community established by free and formerly enslaved Black citizens 11 years after abolition in New York State. Black Radical Brooklyn draws inspiration not only from this story–achieving self-determination through the claiming and holding of a neighborhood–but also from radical local battles for land and dignity from the 1960s to today.
