Black Cultural Archives x Otherness Archive

Thu Jan 19 2023
Black Cultural Archives, Brixton UK

In collaboration with Black Cultural Archives, join us for an evening screening, of The Darker Side of Black. There will be two screenings of the film on the night with Josh Woolford's performance as the intermission.

Otherness Archive presents The Darker Side of Black by Sir Isaac Julien. The film explores homophobia, misogyny and violence within rap and dancehall across music scenes in the UK, US and Jamaica. Featuring interviews with artists themselves and cultural critics as well as music video analysis, the work is a vital intervention in dismantling patriarchy within Blackness.

The film was researched and sourced by Otherness Archive curator Deborah Findlater.

The program is part of Transforming Legacies, a current exhibition being held at Black Cultural Archives, as well as Black British Art curated by Pacheanne Anderson.
