Art as a Response to Anti-Blackness was the virtual film-launch event for Interrupted: Prologue to a Mem-noir attended by more than 1.5 thousand people. It was a dynamic conversation inspired by the film with panelists jazz-great Bob James, two-time NAACP Image Award-nominated author Marita Golden, and Joseph Lewis, founder of Black Bottom Film Festival and executive director of Jazz Bridge. Lindsey Yancich of Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery spoke about Pamela Woolford's work, and Andy Shallal of Busboys and Poets and Dr. Charles Chavis of George Mason University cohosted.
