POV, PBS's long-running showcase for independent non-fiction films, recently unveiled six new interactive documentary shorts that it bills as "allow[ing] audiences to engage...on a deeper level, using new technologies and new paradigms in storytelling" (note: more information on each of the documentaries can be found here). Four of the documentaries were created by alumni of POV Hackathon, POV's weekend laboratory series, which provides mentorship and collaboration opportunities for non-fiction media makers and technologists.
In this recorded interview with [itvt] editor-in-chief, Tracy Swedlow, Adnaan Wasey, executive producer of POV Digital, discusses how the six films use interactivity and new forms of storytelling to deepen audiences' engagement with their subject matter; describes the work of POV Hackathon; and explains why he believes that documentaries should no longer be confined by traditional linear narratives.
Tonight join The Gist of Freedom with host Roy Paul as we talk with the executive producer, of the play Black Wall Street, Walter E. Puryear! Running at The Andrew Freedman Home, 1125 GrandCouse Bronx, NY starting Thursday September 18th thru Sunday October 5,204.
BLACK WALL STREET by Celeste Bedford Walker
In 1921, in a small community in Tulsa Oklahoma, there was a Black paradise called Greenwood. This community consisted of Blacks, Indians, and Jews, who respected and did business with each other. In time the town was soon known as Black Wall Street. In a mere 36 block section of town, these African-Americans owned and operated up to 600 thriving businesses. One of the most popular of these businesses was Old Lady Boleys’,(fictional) an eating establishment which is where our play begins. One Sunday evening, the town’s more influential citizens gathered to have their pictures taken for the local newspaper; in honor of the community’s 20th anniversary. Before the play ends, the entire community of Greenwood is completely burned to the ground. In a 12 hour period, a major Black economic movement is halted.
Walter E. Puryear is the Mid-Bronx Council’s project manager for the Andrew Freedman Home. When the home opened in the Bronx in 1924, it looked like a limestone luxury liner sailing up the Grand Concourse, a grandiosity that advertised its odd function: a privately endowed retirement home for the formerly well-to-do, those who might have lost their money but not their manners or manorial tastes.
