This past Sunday on the monumental steps of Fort Greene Park, photographer and restaurateur, KalaLea assembled a large gathering of Brooklynites who have impacted the Brooklyn arts community for the documentary project, A Great Day in Brooklyn, inspired by Art Kane’s iconic A Great Day in Harlem. I was honored to take part in this group of creatives and entrepreneurs including MoCADA’s Laurie Cumbo, Selma Jackson, Carl Hancock Rux and DJ Spinna.
Organizer KalaLea and entrepreneur, Anu Prestonia of Khamit Kinks.
Photographers Mark Blackshear and Dwayne Rodgers.
A similar project, with the same name has been conceived and shot by Jamel Shabazz. Just goes to show there’s a lot of greatness in the BK.
