Towards a Black Testimony: Prayer, Protest, Peace is a moving image work by Languid Hands that examines Black Testimony as obscured, ignored and undermined. Drawing on archival imagery, Black geographies, and the dying declarations of Black Martyrs, the film explores the complexities of truth, empathy, justice, the law, life and death for the Black Mass. The film borrows its subtitle, structure and aspects of its score, from the third track on jazz drummer and composer Max Roach's 1960 album ‘We Insist! Freedom Now Suite’ featuring jazz vocalist Abbey Lincoln.

The film will be available to watch online via Cubitt’s Vimeo for a limited period of 90 hours in celebration of Abbey Lincoln’s would-be 90th birthday, 6th August. 

Join Languid Hands for a conversation about Towards A Black Testimony with Gail Lewis, writer, psychotherapist, researcher and activist, and Michael B Gillespie, scholar and film theorist, at 6pm on Thursday 6th August.
