In 2013 we curated four screenings to accompany AfriCOBRA in Chicago: Philosophy, an exhibition of art by the Chicago-based Black Arts Movement collective AfriCOBRA. The exhibition and screenings occurred at the Logan Center for the Arts. There’s a plethora of wonderful videos and transcripts at their media page. For ease of use, here are direct links to the conversations that occurred after our screenings.
