2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Maori will write a feature length screenplay exploring the legacy of Black liberation movements in the 1970s, the resultant experience of Generation X, hip-hop, drug addiction, class strife, and gaps between second and third wave feminisms. Maori’s goal is to sympathetically dissect a community not often depicted on screen and examine generation gaps in both the feminist and racial justice movements; complicate the current Black social media trope of the “hotep;” and explore the nuances of class, race, and education.
