Whose Streets?

Join us for our Frame x Frame Film Club panel discussion about Whose Streets? in partnership with Richland Library.

Co-curated by Crush Rush, Richland Library Artist-in-Residence, and Keith Brinkmann, Associate, Film and Sound at Richland Library

Film Discussion: December 16, 2020, at 6 PM EST

Told by the activists and leaders who live and breathe this movement for justice, Whose Streets? is an unflinching look at the Ferguson uprising. When unarmed teenager Michael Brown is killed by police and left lying in the street for hours, it marks a breaking point for the residents of St. Louis, Missouri. Grief, long-standing racial tensions, and renewed anger bring residents together to hold vigil and protest this latest tragedy. Empowered parents, artists, and teachers from around the country come together as freedom fighters. (source)

Crush Rush is an African American artist who is constantly striving to uplift his community through arts education and fact driven dialogue. He values community connectivity, helping others create, learn and share, and looks forward to working with the library to facilitate real dialogue and affect change among artists in need during these unprecedented times.

During his Richland Library residency, his main focus will be on helping artists during this time of unrest by hosting virtual artist meet-ups, listening to local artists affected by the pandemic and creating a dialogue around issues of racial equity in the local art scene.
