Brick Wall Series

Welcome back to the Brick Wall Series (Poems and Interviews.) The Brick Wall Series ran between 2014 and 2016, a very special time in US history, especially as it pertains to race relations and matters of social justice. Aligned with the personal values of the creator, Joseph Green and Elnaton Melaku, the Brick Wall Series offers a diverse group of passionate performers expressing their stories with as little interference as possible. Just a brick wall, two cameras, and their truth.
