Courtland Blade's new show is an exploration of the idea of ‘black spaces’ as opposed to the idea of what some call ‘white spaces.” He is simultaneously exploring some of the culture and history of black people in the city of Indianapolis through place and space - whether it be Madame Walker’s legacy through the theatre, or King Park commemorating the night that Kennedy spoke to the people of Indianapolis after Dr. Martin Luther King’s assassination. The idea of ‘black space’ is a space where people of color feel comfortable and are usually not outnumbered. These are often places where people that are considered white may not feel as comfortable. In a “white space,” people of are color outnumbered, often feel out of place and many times find themselves looking around to find another face of color.”
