GIBFF 2019 FRIDAY- 2PM - DIGGING FOR WELDON IRVINE
Directed by Victorious De Costa

What happens to a dream deferred?
 
Langston Hughes' cautionary prose has been the stimulus for some of the most important artistic offerings of the 20th century.Chiefly among them, the civil rights anthem, "Young, Gifted and Black", written by prolific musician-composer-playwright Weldon Irvine.

Director Victorious DeCosta brings befitting and timely examination to the life and legacy of Weldon Irvine, whose work drew appreciation from the likes of Freddie Hubbard and Nina Simone to Mos Def and Q-Tip.His bountiful and socio-culturally evocative work in music and theater was central to the Black Arts Movement of the 1970s; integral to the evolution of hip hop, from its inception through its golden era of consciousness and heavy jazz-laden sampling; and whose dedicated mentorship sparked a movement in his long-time residence of Jamaica/St. Albans, Queens, helping develop some of the most well-known figures in jazz today.
