The deadly shooting of an unarmed black teenager outside St. Louis has spurred more talk about race in America.
In Rochester, we just marked the 50th anniversary of the riots that broke out in a predominately black area of town. Now a major exhibit, which premiered at the Sundance Festival, is coming to Rochester Contemporary Art Center.
It's called "Question Bridge: Black Males". The trans-media project features comments from more than 1,500 men from diverse backgrounds. It's been in museums across the country and now it's coming here. The goal? To break down stereotypes about black men in America.
RoCo Executive Director Bleu Cease said, “By extension, this encourages people to reconsider the potential for any demographic to be narrowly defined. And I think that's important for everyone in the whole community to consider.”
"Question Bridge: Black Males" opens at RoCo October 3 and runs through mid-November.
