See this 3D installation in person if you can! A multi-channel video installation by artist and filmmaker Garrett Bradley; America (2019) is an imaginative remembrance of Black figures from the early 20th century. America is told through 12 black-and-white vignettes interspersed with footage from the unreleased Lime Kiln Club Field Day (1914); believed to be the oldest surviving feature-length film with an all-Black cast.
