CreativeTime & Weeksville Heritage Center Presents Black Radical Brooklyn

Presented by Creative Time and Weeksville Heritage Center, Funk, God, Jazz, and Medicine: Black Radical Brooklyn will include a series of diverse, community-based artist commissions, launching this fall in Brooklyn’s Bedford Stuyvesant, Crown Heights, and Weeksville neighborhoods. The project will comprise works by artists Xenobia Bailey, Simone Leigh, Otabenga Jones & Associates, and Bradford Young, each of whom is collaborating with a local organization. Comprising performances, installations, and events, the commissioned works will build upon the powerful history of Weeksville—founded in 1838 as an independent free black community and site of self-determination—as well as the larger history of Black radical Brooklyn.
