In partnership with the MMA, Jon Covington presents Black Man, a feature length documentary that tells the stories of the men behind the MMA’s exhibition of photography by Jerry TaliaferroSONS: Seeing the African American Male. The film is a kaleidoscope of raw, riveting, and candid conversations with black men about their lives, their loves, their losses, their AMERICA. Close to three dozen men share their perspectives of the everyday black man in ways we’ve not seen on film. Muskegon is the backdrop for Black Man, but the stories are Any Town, USA.
