African Amedia

It's probably time we put the notion of colorblindness to rest. The last few months should be used as tools, as lessons, as evidence that we need a cultural shift. A big one. Perhaps a step will be acknowledgment of the problems, not a blindness, but truly seeing them. African Amedia is a project taking part in that conversation. Described as a satirical art exhibition and performance piece, African Amedia is a fictional television created by Dallas-based artist Adu meant to highlight "some of the negative portrayals, generalizations, and stereotypes the media casts against African Americans." It's a multi-genre exhibit, with mature content, that hopes to engage in the conversation taking place throughout the country right now. Adu is calling it an open letter to the viewer with the hope that it will inspire relationships "based on content of character, not color of skin." See the exhibit and performance during the opening reception at the African American Museum of Dallas (3536 Grand Ave.) 7 p.m. Sunday. More at africanamedia.org.
