Global Style Week

Join us for the first ever Global Style week at KRM Louisville from June 17 to 22!

documentary screening and discussion – “Black Dandy: A political beauty”

Monday, June 17 – 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Kentucky Refugee Ministries
969-B Cherokee Rd
Louisville, KY 40204

A film by Ariel Wizman & Laurent Lunetta. View the trailer. The film will be presented in French with English subtitles and it contains adult themes, language, and content.

From the filmmakers: “Pharrell Williams, Kanye West, Lebron James… Nowadays, the most fashionable heroes of pop culture are black men. Their love of style is not only a status symbol or a vapid superficial trend, it is rooted in a deep American cultural history, as flamboyant as it is political, that of Black Dandyism. This movement recalls more than a century of cultural adventures, at the crossroads of fashion, arts and major social issues.”
