Black Gotham Experience, a creative intervention that elevates the impact of the African Diaspora, was created in 2010 and is based in the Seaport District. We establish space to revisit untold and suppressed stories through a practice that invites people to walk, talk, and reimagine the past to expand public consciousness. We know that history is not an unbiased collection of records but a cycle of events that we participate in collectively. We are creatives building intentional experiences at the intersection of aesthetic and scholarship to learn, heal, and remember together.
BGX Spring 2022 will be our first season since BGX Fall 2019 and will include a series of short films based on our Epicenter tours of City Hall, and a commission for the Apollo called Kuzaliwa, which offers a new perspective on the history and culture of the Harlem Renaissance. We also look forward to delivering the in-person editions of FIGHTING DARK, an audio walking tour and video exploring NYC’s July 1863 race riots and the power of Black resilience developed as a commission from The Shed.
