Question Bridge: Black Males is a project that facilitates a dialogue between black men from diverse and contending backgrounds. Artists Chris Johnson, Hank Willis Thomas, Kamal Sinclair, and Bayeté Ross Smith traveled the country to collect over 1,500 question and answer videos from over 150 men. The resulting video installation attempts to present the full spectrum of what it means to be “black” and “male” in America. Through Question Bridge, “Blackness” ceases to be a simple, monochromatic concept. Question Bridge has been featured at art centers and museums throughout the United States.
