Join us this Thursday, December 17 at 7pm PST for Voices of I, Too: A Virtual Roundtable . We're excited to partner with KayJo Creatives and Inlandia Institute for this a virtual roundtable featuring Black men who will discuss masculinity, relationships, and their own identity. Register here: https://virtualucrarts.ucr.edu/.../third-thursday-talks.../
This conversation is hosted by Keya Vance and Dr. Natalie Graham of KayJo Creatives with a discussion led by Frito Marcelin. "I, Too" is part of a legacy of artistic efforts inspired by Langston Hughes’ poem of the same title, particularly the turn Hughes makes in the last four lines: "Besides, / They’ll see how beautiful I am / And be ashamed— // I, too, am America."

RIVER SURFER
Directed by Taylor Glenn
A wave in a river is a rapid that stays in one place, which means it can be surfed for a very long time. For Gannet Horn, riding that singular wave is an obsession. (USA, 2019, 3 min.)

THE MAGIC OF CHESS
Directed by Jenny Schweitzer Bell
Every year, the next generation of chess masters meet at the National Elementary Chess Championship. In the ensuing games, kids learn not only the elements of the game but speak of bravery, belief in oneself and the importance of opening moves. They may not always win, but in this short film, the magic of the game is seen through youthful eyes brimming with possibility. (USA, 2019, 9 min.)

HERE WE STAND
Directed by Chris Cresci
In 2018, Save the Redwoods League purchased a magical 700-acre stand of old-growth redwoods in Sonoma County. Conservation has long been about keeping people out of places, but with help from communities of color, the organization is reimagining its role in a diverse, inclusive California. The area will soon be opened to the public and anyone can walk among these ambassadors from another time — some of which have been around since before the fall of the Roman Empire. (USA, 2019, 11 min.)
