ABOUT KETTLE BLACK
Kettle Black is funky, heartfelt, and unmistakably New Orleans. The brainchild of Mumbles alum, Keith Burnstein, along with members of Toubab Krewe and Antibalas, the band is a double percussion discussion that fans out the African and Cuban influences found in New Orleans music to create a new American songbook.
ABOUT AGAINST THE ODDS: ARTISTS OF THE HARLEM RENAISSANCE
Explore the lives of visual artists who made the Harlem Renaissance one of the 20th-century’s richest artistic moments. Archival footage, newsreels, and photographs recall the influential force of exhibitions by African American artists, Harlem’s vibrancy in the Roaring Twenties, and significant personalities such as William E. Harmon, W. E. B. Du Bois, and Alain Locke. Watch black America triumph over formidable odds to create lasting beauty. (PBS Home Video, 1994, 1 hour)
