A screening of the documentary “Romeo is Bleeding,” and a post-doc dialogue with the film’s main character Donté Clark, and San Francisco Chronicle columnist Otis Taylor Jr.
The conversation will focus on how reporters can responsibly report on communities that they are not from, with an emphasis on communities of color.
Donté Clark is a spoken word artist and community activist from North Richmond. He was a teacher and founding member of RAW Talent, a creative arts space for youth in the city. Clark also provided his cultural expertise in Contra Costa County courtrooms, as an expert witness in criminal trials, where district attorneys seek to add gang enhancements that can add years to a sentence.
Otis Taylor Junior is the San Francisco Chronicle’s East Bay columnist who focuses on issues including economic inequality and gentrification throughout the changing Bay Area. Taylor is originally from Columbia, South Carolina, where he covered the arts and culture beat for The State newspaper in his hometown.
