A synthesis of Claudrena N. Harold’s rigorous historical research and Kevin Jerome Everson’s refined, materialist image making, the ongoing UVA Black Fire films series employs a radical, nonnarrative approach to represent the legacy of Black achievement and everyday life at the University of Virginia (UVA). Engaging students as filmmaking collaborators grounds the project within the pedagogical process, which combines historical investigation with questions of cinematic form. Each film is distinct in terms of style, and the attention to specific details, language, and gesture helps to fill the gaps in UVA’s historical record while evoking the experiences of Black students and faculty on college campuses across the country.
