Conversations by Maison Black Mission


Conversations by Maison Black Mission is a video series aimed at exploring the interactions between strangers of diverse backgrounds. The original idea came from a Facebook altercation that involved blackface and getting blocked for calling it out. Inspired by an older documentary called “The Color of Fear” shot in a post-riot early 90’s Los Angeles, we’ve rented a space and looked for people with the most opposing views. To our surprise, each Conversation sparked new friendships and opened peoples’ views in more ways than we could imagine.
