what's on Shirley Chisholm | www.imjussayin.com

What’s On Recommends
Chisholm ’72: Unbought and Unbossed @ Barbican
18 April 2018 Tickets

about


Already a trailblazer, Brooklynite Shirley Chisholm became the first Black woman elected to the US Congress in 1968, representing New York. Honest, forthright and a skilful orator, Chisholm caused a stir in announcing her candidacy for president.

Underestimated by many, including other (male) members of the Congressional Black Caucus – a group that she also helped to found – Chisholm faced the double discrimination of racism and sexism, taking on naysayers with wit, intelligence and spot-on pronouncements.

Q&A follows the movie.

detail


Shola Lynch’s documentary features interviews with supporters and opponents alike, witness to the ground-breaking campaign, contextualised by emotive footage of Vietnam War protests, the Black Panthers and the Women’s movement. And after the presidency of Barack Obama and the candidacy of Hillary Rodham Clinton, acknowledgement of Chisholm’s story takes on even greater bearing. This is a woman everyone should know about.

A century after the 1918 Representation of the People Act, which first gave (some) women the right to vote in the UK, these films look at women’s rebellious and often dangerous efforts to gain equality, as captured in selected cinematic journeys from around the world.

This season features the incredible stories of Shirley Chisholm, the first black woman to run for US presidential candidate.

SUSPECT OBJECTS SUSPECT SUBJECTS @ Rich Mix
Until 29 April Tickets

about


A collection of works which question, highlight and respond to the victimisation of Muslim communities.

In a time of increased societal racism; xenophobia against migrants, attacks against Muslim people and stereotyping of those who simply appear Muslim, these views are freely expressed through media misrepresentation, hate-filled terminology, exploitative political strategies and sensationalist headlines.
The artworks reflect on this fear and racism as contemporary social factors, political currency and cultural memes that alter how people navigate reality and memory. Targeting and immersing the viewer echoes the persistent attacks which surround Muslim communities.

The use of advertising, installation, painting, sculpture, still and moving image explore the multi-faceted channels used to influence and fuel prejudice. Juxtapositions question the surreal ‘validity’ of suspicion and evoke humour, personal memory, and the experiences of duality and difference.

detail


Birmingham based artist Faisal Hussain creates work that questions perceptions, undermines lazy stereotypes and highlights missing histories and overlooked facts. Whether in music, in a gallery or a sign outside a kebab shop, his cross-disciplinary practice is often presented in varied environments to engage with diverse audiences. Using archive and personal memory as starting points, his work explores the representation and understanding of South Asian culture and identity through the media, government, communities and individuals. The BBC, The Guardian, and Dazed and Confused have cited his work.

about


In one of Chicago’s wealthiest hospitals, a white doctor tries to remove a black receptionist by enlisting her colleague as a spy. The women’s friendship quickly deteriorates and a chilling power struggle ensues. With the office becoming a battleground of passive aggression and paranoia, things spin wildly out of control.

detail


Joel Drake Johnson’s incendiary new play examines underlying racism in the workplace, white guilt and the manipulation of women by men in power. Rasheeda Speaking is a shocking dark comedy that keeps you in its claustrophobic grip until the final moment, proving that nothing in Middle America is ever truly black or white.

about


Davey has seen something he can never forget. Anita has been forced to flee her home. Tonight, they meet for the first time… and their lives will change forever.

Philip Ridley’s modern classic was a huge success when it premiered at the Hampstead Theatre in 2001, and a West End smash in 2007. Thrilling, heartbreaking and darkly humorous by turns, it is now seen as one of the most powerful explorations of hate crime – and society’s need to crush ‘difference’ – ever written.

Sankara @ Cockpit
Until 14 April Tickets

about


The rise & fall of an African hero.

“Homeland or death we will win!”

Sankara brought an unprecedented change in the mentality of his country, refused foreign aid (under the slogan “he who feeds you, controls you”), nationalised all land and mineral wealth, promoted work for everyone to reach food self-sufficiency and build the first railway.
He was also the first African leader to favour women’s rights and to appoint them as key Ministers.

Fully aware of his tragic destiny, and just days before his assassination, Thomas Sankara pronounced the famous words “while revolutionaries as individuals can be murdered, you can’t kill ideas”.

detail


Sankara also started an ambitious plan to fight desertification by planting thousands of trees, promoted mass vaccination, and overtly denounced the dark mechanisms behind Africa’s odious debt (namely World Bank and IMF) which are the cause of today’s World crisis, despite the silence of mainstream media about it.

What’s On Recommends
Caroline or Change @ Lyric Hammersmith
Until 21 April Tickets

about


1963. In quiet Lake Charles, Louisiana, the destruction of a Confederate statue might just signal that change is in the air…

But, whatever the progress of the civil rights movement, in the Gellman household things seem just the same – for now at least.

detail


Eight-year-old Noah, heartbroken by the death of his mother and his father’s remarriage, sneaks down to the basement to spend time with the black maid he idolises, Caroline Thibodeaux: Caroline who runs everything. Whilst the basement may seem a fantastical place – even the appliances have a voice of their own – Caroline’s work there is repetitive and badly paid. But when Mrs Gellman comes up with a way for her to take a little more money home, the consequences for Caroline and Noah’s relationship are not what anybody might have expected…

An Olivier Award winning musical with a hugely original, highly eclectic and uniquely American score, Caroline or Change creates an uplifting and profound portrait of America at a time of momentous social upheaval.

The exhibition brings together painting, prints, cartoons, textiles and ceramics, moving film, instruments and the all-important jazz sound, to explicitly examine the influence of jazz on British art, design and wider society.

detail


Jazz provoked reactions ranging from devotion to abhorrence when the idea, and then the sound, of the music first entered the consciousness of the British public in the aftermath of the First World War. Visiting American groups such as the Original Dixieland Jazz Band and the Southern Syncopated Orchestra offered Britons their first chance to experience the music live.

As the new millennium approaches, America gets rocked by one of the biggest political sex scandals of all time: The Monica Lewinsky Scandal.

Slyly exhuming the little blue dress that launched the biggest media circus of a generation, the five women who were at the centre of this infamous scandal collide on stage: A First Lady, a secretary, a daughter, a confidant, and an intern. A theatrical battle emerges over how it all went down, who were the heroes and villains, and why, twenty years later, we’re only beginning to grapple with one of the most challenging questions in American political history: How do we respond to women seeking power, and the men who abuse that power?
