2005 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Tina will create a video that documents the cultural significance of the ODUNDE festival in South Philadelphia, as one of the oldest and largest African American festivals in the US, and its founder Lois Fernandez. After working with Lois on the 8-minute documentary, The Taking of South Central... Philadelphia (a Precious Places Project of the Scribe Video Center), Tina realized that the story of ODUNDE merited a more detailed video project. This documentary will share this story of a cultural warrior and the importance of her and ODUNDE in Philadelphia and within a global African Diasporic context.
