Michelle Obama, First Lady of The United States of America:
An American Street Mural in Harlem
Harlem Park to Park – https://harlemparktopark.org/ – has a great teaser video out on the project to create the Black Lives Matter mural on Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd this past summer.
The plan is to expand the project to produce a 40 minute video for the film festival circuit
As Patch.com notes:
While the film mostly follows the mural as it is created in real-time, Okera said it is informed by Harlem’s creative legacy stemming from the Great Migration, in which thousands of Black people settled here in the early 20th century after fleeing racial terrorism in the South — a process that led to the neighborhood’s flourishing during the Harlem Renaissance.
“We belong to that legacy — those refugees from terror that became Harlem residents,” Okera said. “The legacy they left was to enjoy that rich cultural mecca that has been Harlem for the last 100 years.”
The film’s launch will coincide with a yearlong series of programming that will be announced on the documentary’s website, americanstreetmuralinharlem.com. Those interested in supporting the film can donate online, where they can receive memorabilia including posters and T-Shirts of the mural.
The goal of the film is simple, Evans-Hendricks said: “to show our community matters, Harlem matters, has always mattered.”https://patch.com/new-york/harlem/documentary-follow-rise-harlems-black-lives-matter-mural
