In conjunction with Creative Time and Weeksville Heritage Center’s new exhibition “Funk, God, Jazz & Medicine: Black Radical Brooklyn,” we’re excited to present our first Conversation on Self-Determination, Black Radical Brooklyn: Past, Present, and Future. Join us at Weeksville Heritage Center [158 Buffalo Avenue, Brooklyn, NY] this Saturday, September 27 at 3:30 PM, to hear how four community-based artworks came to life. Listen as artists, curators, and partners reflect on two years of making art that explores local sites of self-determination, yesterday and today.

“We have evolved into an underground network of guerrilla parenting and survivalist experts.” —Robert A. Pruitt

Meet Otabenga Jones & Associates, one of four commissioned artists for Funk, God, Jazz & Medicine: Black Radical Brooklyn. OJA is a Houston-based artist collective, founded in 2002 by artist and educator Otabenga Jones in collaboration with members Dawolu Jabari Anderson, Jamal Cyrus, Kenya Evans, and Robert A. Pruitt. The group’s pedagogical mission takes a myriad of forms, including actions, writings, DJ sets, and installations. In scope, the organization’s mission is three-fold: to underscore the complications of black representation, to maintain and promote the core principles of the Black radical tradition, and (in the words of the late Russell Tyrone Jones) “teach the truth to the young black youth.”

Learn more about their #FunkGodJazzMedicine project here.
