Good morning all!

I am sending this along on behalf of Richard Kane of Kane Lewis 
Productions. I believe many of you remember the showing of Robert 
Shetterly's Ashley Bryan film at a previous conference. He is available 
to do a showing for your library if you wish. I have added his email here.

Regards,

Andrea

•  I Know a Man ... Ashley Bryan (73, 57, 32 min; 2016) Trailer: 
https://vimeo.com/329642618 
<https://shoutout.wix.com/so/dbOAjREdn/c?w=4pxedEaFECH42UuaSGSgThQ5-BeOYBpvbyKOuQs4epk.eyJ1IjoiaHR0cHM6Ly92aW1lby5jb20vMzI5NjQyNjE4IiwiciI6IjE5MjkyMTBmLTIzNjQtNDExMy1jYzdhLTRhNmNkMzdlNmQ0NyIsIm0iOiJtYWlsIiwiYyI6IjAwMDAwMDAwLTAwMDAtMDAwMC0wMDAwLTAwMDAwMDAwMDAwMCJ9>

I Know a Man ... Ashley Bryan is an antidote to the hatred, racism and 
division that our country is experiencing.  The film is about this 
95-year-old poet/artist who skips and jumps in his heart like a child.  
Born in Harlem and raised in the Bronx, Ashley’s talent was nurtured by 
artist Romare Bearden. Ashley was drafted out of Cooper Union into the 
segregated US army at age 19. He served in an all-Black battalion 
during World War II and preserved his humanity by drawing, stowing 
supplies in his gas mask. Ashley lived on the remote Cranberry Islands, 
Maine, until his death in February 2022 at the age of 98.  He had been 
using art his entire life to celebrate joy, mediate the darkness of war 
and racism, explore the mysteries of faith, and create loving 
community.  He is a poet/illustrator of over 50 published children's 
books (many published by Simon and Schuster), and makes magical puppets 
and sea glass windows from found objects inspired by his African 
heritage. The film explores his world from the time his father “was 
given the mop and the broom”, (a reference to Gordon Parks photograph, 
American Gothic).  He quotes Marian Anderson admonishing “to keep 
another down you have to hold them down, and therefore cannot  … soar to 
the potential within you.”  He spreads beauty through his linocut prints 
exhorting “Let My People Go”. His life story and the art he makes from 
this wellspring of experience is an inspiration to people of all ages.
