The Question Bridge: Black Males project is a platform for Black men of all ages and backgrounds to ask and respond to questions about life in America.

In 2012, the project launched as a documentary-styled video art installation, but since then, it has expanded to include an interactive website and mobile app, community engagement events, an education curriculum for high school students and now, a book.

Flux Projects proudly presents two of the Question Bridge collaborators - Hank Willis Thomas (photographer) & Deborah Willis (producer) to talk about the ongoing project and the launch of their new book.

Hank Willis Thomas is a conceptual artist living and working in New York City. His work focuses on themes related to perspective identity, commodity, media, and popular culture. He often incorporates recognizable icons into his work, many from well-known advertising and branding campaigns. On advertising, in an interview with Time, Thomas says, “Part of advertising’s success is based on its ability to reinforce generalizations developed around race, gender and ethnicity which are generally false, but [these generalizations] can sometimes be entertaining, sometimes true, and sometimes horrifying.”
