inspired: question bridge

I often have many questions about why society is the way it is? How did we come to be who we are? What is my contribution? And I have questions specifically for the Black community as well. In this project, Question Bridge: Black Males, two artists, Chris Johnson and Hank Willis Thomas explore divisive issues within the African American male community. "The project interweaves a series of questions wherein the subjects serve as both interviewers and interviewees—posing and answering each other's questions—mediated only through the lens of video." I definitely think that this project is a necessary critique and I hope that we can look within ourselves to be the answers to these very difficult questions and issues that we face today.
