2015 Infinity Award: New Media
Question Bridge: Black Males is an innovative transmedia art project that seeks to represent and redefine black male identity in America. Through a video mediated question and answer exchange, diverse members of this "demographic" bridge economic, political, geographic, and generational divisions.
The project was created by Chris Johnson, Hank Willis Thomas, Bayeté Ross Smith, Kamal Sinclair, and Jesse Williams. The Executive Producers are Delroy Lindo, Deborah Willis, and Jesse Williams; the Producers are Natasha Logan and William Sylvester; the Supervising Story Producer is Rosa White; the Designer is Ryan Alexiev; and the Web Developer is Jon Vidar / Uncharted Digital.
Question Bridge: Black Males is a fiscally sponsored project of the Bay Area Video Coalition (a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization) and supported in part by a grant from the Open Society Institute: Campaign for Black Male Achievement, The California Endowment, The Tribeca Film Institute, the LEF Foundation, The Center for Cultural Innovation, and the California College of the Arts. Question Bridge was supported by the Sundance Institute's New Frontier Story Lab.
