Buffalo Native Korey Green is directing a film that could change the scope of racial relations in America. 

After two and half years Green has completed "The Blackness Project" Documentary. It's a film that discusses how blacks view racial relations in America.

The film was inspired by "The Whiteness Project." It's a documentary on how whites feel about race relations. 

"It wasn't that I didn't like The Whiteness Project. IT brought us here to this point, so it definitely did its job. I want The Blackness Project to continue where it left off," Green said. 

The main purpose of The Blackness Project film is to bridge the gap between white and black Americans with in depth interviews on race. 

Green and The Blackness Project Executive Producer Peter Johnson's personal experiences in Buffalo, a city ranked as one of America's most racially segregated cities are reflected in this film. 

Topics such as racism, discrimination, interracial relationships, Affirmative Action, segregation, reparations, and the “N” Word, are openly and candidly discussed in the documentary.

The Blackness Project premieres Friday, February 9th at 7:30pm inside the Burchfield Penney Art Center on the campus of Buffalo State College.
