We have been granted yet another wonderful opportunity to talk about our work! Toasted Marshmallows will be featured on The Brooklyn Historical Society’s third annual “What Are You?” panel on November 9th, 2pm.
More about the panel from Crossing Borders, Bridging Generations:
From the Travyon Martin murder trial, to racist responses to the Cheerios commercial staring an interracial couple, recent media events illustrate that the U.S is definitely not post-racial. Join BHS in exploring critical questions relating to multicultural and multiracial identity. We’ll discuss big questions like: How do we perform and display our identities? How does media, film, art, humor and photography shape and mediate mixed-race identity?
Other panelists include:
Michael David Murphy and Alyson West, creators of We Are The 15%, Natasha Logan and Chris Johnson of the transmedia project, Question Bridge: Black Males, and Jay Smooth, host of hip-hop video blog Ill Doctrine and video producer at Colorlines.com.
Plus a dance performance by special guests – We’re Muslim, Don’t Panic.
This event is FREE! Brooklyn Brewery beer and light refreshments will be served. You can RSVP here.
