Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art to Show The Black List: Volumes 1 and 2
HARTFORD, CT.- The critically acclaimed multimedia project, The Black List: Volumes 1 and 2, comes to Hartford this summer in a film screening and a new exhibition presented jointly by The Amistad Center for Art & Culture and the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art.

Photographs from The Black List: Vol. 2 will be on view in The Amistad Center’s gallery at the Wadsworth Atheneum from July 11 through August 23. In addition, a special FREE screening of the HBO Documentary will be held in the Wadsworth’s Aetna Theater on July 15, at 7:00 pm. A post-film discussion with Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, the series’ photographer and filmmaker, will also be held on July 15. Admission is on a first come, first served basis.

Conceived of by Greenfield-Sanders and Elvis Mitchell, a film critic and NPR correspondent, The Black List reveals the diverse experiences of being Black in America through a series of intimate interviews and portrait sessions with leading African American figures.

The film features personal accounts and interviews with luminary figures like activist and artist Majora Carter, actor Laurence Fishburne, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, author Toni Morrison, and musician/producer P Diddy, among others.

Greenfield-Sanders and Mitchell began the project in May 2006, seeking to create a documentary that would become a “book on black culture.” The Black: List Vol. 1 made its world premiere at 2008's Sundance Film Festival.
