Good Old Pussy and Old Good Pussy
by Amoke Awele Kubat
Directed by Maren Ward
Amoke’s project, Good Old Pussy and Old Good Pussy (aka Good Old Kit Kat and Old Good Kit Kat) is about Black women’s UNSAIDS about AGING; mind, body, and sexuality. This work explores the historical and continual objectification of Black female bodies from slavery to medical progress and bioethics, educational institutions, the workplace and contemporary media images.
