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 (Opens September 20, 2014) 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.
