The Masculinity Project: Watch Tonight’s Virtual Screening of NEVER WILL BE FORGOTTEN: Oscar Grant Tribute

Posted on July 30, 2009
The National Black Programming Consortium (NBPC) and Independent Television Service (ITVS) joined up to present a web-based “virtual screening” series, which showcases some of the latest short documentaries from the Masculinity Project. Be sure to check out tonight’s virtual screening at 8:00 PM EDT of the film NEVER WILL BE FORGOTTEN: Oscar Grant Tribute, which looks at the police shooting of Oakland teenager Oscar Grant in early 2009 and two teens who decided to use music to express their frustration. Working with Youth Movement Records, an Oakland-based youth media organization that teaches youth to create hip-hop music, the young producers crafted a song for Grant and showcase their song, its production process and thoughts on the incident. Following the screening, join a live Q&A with the filmmaker. Launched in November 2008 by NBPC, ITVS and the help of national partners, the Masculinity Project is an interactive multimedia and community engagement initiative. The initiative delves beyond stereotypes to reveal what it means to be a black man in America through an online mix of new and re-released works from emerging and veteran filmmakers, focusing on the areas of community, justice, culture and family. Watch NEVER WILL BE FORGOTTEN at 8:00 PM EDT tonight and join the discussion >> R.S.V.P on Facebook >> Learn more about the Masculinity Project >>
