Black Hollywood: Here Before Now with Kwaku Alston hosted by Photoville and Leica
What does today’s Black Hollywood look like through the lens of a seasoned Black photographer? What does it mean to be positioned as a standard bearer or gatekeeper of sorts, when it comes to the creation of imagery that will ultimately be used to sell to and be relatable to diverse audiences? This Saturday, October 3rd 4-5pm EST, Photoville and Leica will be hosting “Black Hollywood: Here Before Now with Kwaku Alston” a virtual conversation where Alston will present images that span a 25 year career that has visually contributed to the black narrative in Hollywood.
