A Great Day in Brooklyn
Coordinated by community arts organization DOPE SWAN, A Great Day in Brooklyn, and it's follow-up Another Great Day in Brooklyn, brought together some of Brooklyn's brightest stars for a historic photographic memoir. Shot by renowned documentarian and Brooklyn native Jamel Shabazz, the project is a visual blueprint of Brooklyn residents who eloquently merge the worlds of art, activism and entrepreneurship. Shot on the stairs of the iconic Brooklyn Museum and Brooklyn Bridge Park, participants included Michael K. Williams from HBO’s “The Wire”, hip-hop emcee, actor and community activist Mos Def and Black Girls Rock! founder DJ Beverly Bond. Photos by Jamel Shabazz and his team.
