This Kind of Black

Author(s): Reece Williams Company: Reece Williams and HOME Running time: 1h 05min approx

A coming-of-age tale set in 1990s Moss Side, a stone’s throw from conflict and violence.

This Kind of Black celebrates a community held together by prayers, warmth and humour, whilst also mourning the tragic loss of young life. Taking place at the intersection of race and class, when the media only portrays you through the lens of ‘Gunchester,’ gangs and poverty, it explores the relationship between a father and a son, and the impact of trauma on the mental health of young Black boys across generations.
