We Say...

Brooklyn is to the ’80s and ’90s what Harlem is to the ’20s. That is to say, it was the site of an African-American artistic renaissance. Nelson George’s film, Brooklyn Boheme, explores the place, the people, and the movement through photographs and interviews. George, a resident of Fort Greene, Brooklyn for 20-plus years, looks back nostalgically on a time when the rent was cheap and the culture was vibrant. Now, the area has been somewhat tamed by gentrification, but once, it was mecca for African-American and Latino artists such as Spike Lee, Wesley Snipes, Saul Williams, Chris Rock, and Rosie Perez. Creative Alliance presents a screening of the film in honor of their upcoming Spike Lee tribute. Following the film, there will be a discussion with some of Baltimore’s African-American artists and community leaders. (Alexa Kwiatkoski)
