Rapper and singer Topaz Jones's latest work is a visual album that offers a thoroughly modern and timely update to a Black-centric alphabet created by a forward-thinking group of educators in 1970s Chicago. This pastiche of music, images and identity takes the viewer on an unforgettable sensory journey. Eileen Arandiga

Co-presented with Italian Trade Commission
