This documentary on the late 1960s Black Artists' Group (BAG) was screened at the 2020 Whitaker St. Louis International Film Festival. By blending music, poetry, drama, dance, and the visual arts, BAG addressed the most pressing social issues and brought awareness to the struggles faced by Black city residents. Although BAG’s life in St. Louis was brief, members, including Oliver Lake and Julius Hemphill, have gone on to impressive careers as experimental jazz players.
