Ice Cube studied architectural drafting before he became an entertainer. He understood from a cultural standpoint how to make do with what you have. African Americans have been practicing that philosophy from day one in this country. Instead of being praised for such creativity, it was ignored and deemed unworthy. Yet, it didn’t stop others from taking what we were doing or practicing the same philosophy and getting fame, glory or a wealthy life. Now, we need to spotlight how we all share each others ideals and philosophies for the betterment of all people. We must share our humanity. And in this video, Ice Cube offers his perspective on the Eames team (Charles and Ray Eames). I happen to like their work as well. Great minds think alike.
Interview of the artist Mark Bradford. He talks about how he makes do with materials that he finds. That has been apart of African American life from the beginning in this country. Adjusting to a new world and crafting a way to live, to express oneself and honor that life. In tribute to our enduring spirit and the 20th anniversary of the re-discovery of the African Burial Ground.
