Crenshaw Dairy Mart Presents “Black August”

By whitewall

August 6, 2020

This weekend, August 7—9, Crenshaw Dairy Mart is presenting the digital exhibition “Black August” and premiering the documentary Whose Streets? by Damon Davis. Debuting on PBS’s educational platform POV for 72 hours only, the feature-length film looks at the 2014 Ferguson rebellion, and is accompanied by a virtual selection of programming and works by Lola Ogbara, Jen Everett, and Adrian Walker.

Co-directed by Davis and Sabaah Folayan Whose Streets? will be streamed to the public six years after the murder of Michael Brown by officer Darren Wilson, which sparked the movement in Ferguson, MO. The film sheds light on the repeated violence against Black neighborhoods, following the history of Black resistances that have occurred in the month of August—like the Haitian Revolution, March on Washington, and the Nat Turner Rebellion—thus earning the title “Black August.”

Concurrently, Davis has curated a selection of artworks in an exhibition including pieces like Walker’s Covered in Crowns from the “We Matter” series, an untitled work from Everett’s “Redoubled/Something We Carry” works, and Ogbara’s stoneware and glitter creation All That Glitters Ain’t Gold.

Davis will also be conducting a series of talks with each artist throughout the weekend live on Crenshaw Dairy Mart’s Instagram.
