          from pierre bennu / Added

          This commercial for a Black Moses Barbie toy celebrating the legacy of Harriet Tubman is part of Pierre Bennu's larger series of paintings and films deconstructing and re-envisioning images of people of color in commercial and pop culture. In this piece, the inspiring legacy of Harriet Tubman, the historical figure, is translated in order to examine and interrogate the gendered construction and marketing of heroism, violence, and play. It spent a year in the "Homage to Harriet" exhibit at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of African-American History and Culture in Baltimore, MD during 2013. Directed, written, shot & storyboard by: Pierre Bennu Voice over Meagan Shea Pierre Bennu Jamyla bennu Props & Fashion Dirk Joesph & Pierre Bennu puppeteering & backgrounds: Pierre Bennu
