A tree planted in Brooklyn still bears fruit 20 years later

I came across this incredible trailer for the feature length documentary called A Walk Through Fort Greene.  Directed by noted writer/director/ historian Nelson George, A Walk Through Fort Greene profiles some of the black influential creatives of the mid 80’s and 90’s.  Calling Fort Greene their home was one of the main things that bound this innovative group together.  I can say that a similar upheaval of conformity is happening right now.  The amount of young, black talent that is flooding inner cities and suburbs alike is astounding.  The era that ended in Fort Greene is being picked up and is charging the creative batteries of “The New School”.  I, personally, can’t wait for this full length documentary to premiere.
