Question Bridge: Black Males

Oakland Museum of California

Question Bridge: Black Males returns to the Oakland Museum of California. Immerse yourself in intimate videos -- woven together and arranged to simulate face-to-face conversations between participants -- among a diverse group of 150 Black men across the United States. Hear these men answer each other's questions with exceptional honesty and vulnerability, and share stories, beliefs, and values in a personal portrayal of their lives. Encompassing themes of family, love, interracial relationships, community, education, and wisdom, Question Bridge: Black Males presents nuanced portraits of past, present, and future of Black men in American society.


This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about Question Bridge: Black Males :

OMCA recently acquired this ground-breaking video installation produced by artists Chris Johnson and Hank Willis Thomas in collaboration with Bayeté Ross Smith and Kamal Sinclair. It features interviews with a diverse group of 150 black men, arranged to create the effect of face-to-face conversations on the past, present and future depiction of black masculinity in America.
