The Black Media Council (BMC) is pleased to present the ‘Blackness and Media Project’ to the Austin community.  This one day event, was formulated to bring students and the greater Austin community together, in an effort to showcase the knowledge and talents of  individuals of African heritage from the fields of Media and Performing Arts. This event provides a multifaceted investigation of Blackness and the Media by incorporating a cross-disciplinary approach, in order to enlighten and entertain the Austin community.

This year’s event will be on Friday, April 9th, and will take part in two sections.  The first section takes place between 11am-2pm at the John L. Warfield Center for African and African American Studies on the UT-Austin campus, in which Black Graduate students from an array of different backgrounds, will present their research and facilitate discussions surrounding their work.   As well, a documentary screening created by one of BMC’s own, will also be shown.  The second part of the program will take place at the Carver Museum and Cultural Center in East Austin, between 6:30pm-9:00pm.  This part of the event will consist of a series of performances: poetry, dance, musical selections, African martial arts, and a reception to follow.
