+++ MORE ON THE DISCOURSE:
The Discourse, a documentary mixtape, is the fruits of the first step made by Veuxdo Child in the documenting of our collective voice and thus our literal spoken history.

Conversation is a healthy exercise and is necessary for reflection and growth. It is important for us to engage in ongoing active discussion on what’s critically relevant to ourselves and each other about our collective condition as a people, as creators, as community, and as a society.

While these conversations are by no means the end all be all or complete nor definitive story or discussion on society as we perceive it – because knowledge evolves as we grow and learn – these discussions are meant to spark or add to the flame for eternal reflection and conversation. Rather, this move is just the tip of the iceberg, and it is my hopes that The Discourse encourages more conversation with self and with our neighbors, friends, and Fam about what’s around us, where we come from, what shapes us, how we shape ourselves; including (but not only) what is fed to us through major media houses or “the powers that be.”

It is my hope that this documentary mixtape serves as inspiration for continuing conversation as well as tinder to spark critical thought and reflection. Inspiration is the food for thought and the fuel for love.
