'Ye or Nay? - A.M. Darke feat. Tajae Keith, Nick Yonge, and Seren Sensei
'Ye or Nay? is a satirical take on the classic game Guess Who?, where all of the characters are Black men, and half of them are Kanye West. Eschewing the binarized identities of its predecessor, 'Ye or Nay? allows us to examine the language we use to describe and differentiate Black men: What does “brown skin” mean when all of the subjects are brown?
‘Ye or Nay? wrestles with the issues of the problematic fave, providing a critical analysis of popular Black men from a position of cultural subjectivity. What has each given and taken from The Culture? Can we love our icons while still holding them accountable? Is it a call out, or a genuine expression of our care, our pain, our disappointment, and, our love, because we were always rooting for everybody Black, even when everybody Black wasn't rooting for us.
