The Black List Project was conceived of by photographer/filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders with Elvis Mitchell, public radio host and former New York Times film critic. It consists of a number of components including a film, a book, a traveling portrait exhibition and an educational initiative. The project was produced by the media collective Freemind Ventures. The idea was to interview, film and photograph prominent African Americans of various professions, disciplines and backgrounds. These stories and insights on the struggles, triumphs and joys of black life in this country would work toward re-defining “blacklist” for a new century in the process.
The DVD is in stores now at Target.
