Short Film: “How Do You Raise A Black Child?”


By christinewatson / / A little something heavy for your Monday morning, but we thought this was a really well done film to the poem “How Do You Raise A Black Child?” by Cortney Lamar Charleston. It debuted recently as part of the Motionpoems Film Series at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis and was directed by Seyi Peter-Thomas, whose work includes campaigns for MTV, commercials for Truth (Anti-Tobacco), Sprint, Geico and many other brands.
