Root Shock Screening

  • Historic Kenton Firehouse 8105 North Brandon Avenue Portland, OR, 97217 United States (map)

A documentary short about the Mayo House, a historic house in NE Portland that was recently saved and moved to a new location by artist Cleo Davis and his family, where it is  envisioned as a space where historians, artists and members of the black community can preserve and create culture. Produced by University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication Master student Cecilia Brown.

Screened with work-in-progress showing of SOUL’D: the economics of our black body. The Project (working title) presents a new performance piece, conceived by Damaris Webb and devised by a cohort of local African American performers and designers who are engaging with the questions of how our black bodies have participated in the American Economic Dream.

Made possible by the generosity of Ronni Lacroute.

THIS EVENT IS FREE. Limited Seating — RSVP recommended.
