Abstract:

The Black Kungfu Experience traces the rise of black kungfu in the United States in the 1960s and 1970s to the martial arts scene of today. Chinese and African American experiences evolve differently yet converge; they challenge political and social persecution. The film focuses on a group of African American pioneers. Their stories illustrate how the legacy of kungfu is less about flash and style, and more about community, identity, and cross-cultural bridges.
