Who is Black Brooklyn?

Black homeowners. Black business owners. Black residents. Black school children. Black squatters. Black revelers. Black slaves. Free black people. Black migrant workers. Black immigrants. Black Africans. Black African-Americans. Black West-Indians. Black people who have achieved all and achieved nothing. Black dreamers. Black builders. Blacks who have forgotten all and have been forgotten. Black dancers. Black people who have dared to remember. The past, the present, and the future populations of black people and all the shifting definitions of ‘black’ in between. Black people who have survived in the borough of Brooklyn.
