Syreeta McFadden kicks off her 2018 series of cultural conversations at Baldwin's PO'P Gallery. McFadden screens seminal works of cultural significance and leads participants in stirring, honest, and thought-provoking conversations about how these smart, insightful, and often under-appreciated works shift the cultural landscape (literally) as we are watching them. Works screened range from rare documentaries, art films, and music videos, to theatrical releases.
