Familial and Community Relationships

Deeps > Contemporary Film and the Black Atlantic > Familial and Community Relationships


Where does family exist within the memory and history of the Black Atlantic?  How are families structured?  Where and when do they fracture?  The posts within this section aims to detail specific family relationships as they are presented within several of the films and how they speak to millennials and others of the twenty-first century. In particular, we are interested in the role that voice and sound play in uniting a group of people and helping to solidify a cultural identity.
