Haus of Glitter: 97 Admiral St. Providence, RI
Taking place in a 22nd-century history class, “Amerikkka Better Have My Money: The Visual Album” sheds light on our country’s racial injustices by highlighting parts of history that usually go untold. Young artists use film, fashion, dance, and music to reveal the realities of systemic oppression, the exploitation and monetization of Black and Brown bodies, and the erasure of Black communities. The artists conclude the journey with an expression of joy that honors each of their individual ancestries and a finale fashion show that centers womxn and femmes of color which features their custom up-cycled fashion.
The premier of the film features a site-specific immersive mural display and fashion runway in The Haus of Glitter’s Liberation Garden, inviting viewers to tap into their femininity and strut among the eARThwork planted and painted by these brilliant young artists.
