“Question Bridge: Black Male is an experimental non-fiction new media project designed to explore critically 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 others’ questions– mediated only through the lens of video.

By facilitating a conversation between black men across the geographic, economic, generational, educational and social strata of American society, Question Bridge provides space for Black Men to dispel preconceptions and bring the full spectrum of their identity and beliefs to the forefront. The media installation and documentary film provide insight into 200 exchanges between 100 black men from a broad geographic area; and the interactive website expands this dialogue into a “”megalogue”” among a critical mass of Black men in America.

Question Bridge: Black Males is supported in part by a grant from the Open Society Institute, The Tribeca Film Institute, the LEF Foundation, The Center for Cultural Innovation, and The California College of the Arts.

The Oakland Museum has an installation of the Question Bridge January 21, 2012 – July 8, 2012.
