Ulysses Jenkins

Ulysses Jenkins has created a body of video work that spans the last two decades. From his early verite work with the Video Venice Collective in the 1970s, through his current investigation of the media's portrayal of African American men, Jenkins has consistently interrogated questions of race, history and the power of the state. In works that explore issues such as the African diaspora and racism in the media, Jenkins provides important insights into the political and cultural realities of African American communities in the United States.

Jenkins' work has been exhibited internationally. He lives in California.
