JIBADE-KHALIL HUFFMAN, Brooklyn, New York, will travel to Chicago, Illinois; Jackson and Money, Mississippi; and St. Petersburg, Florida, to research the lives and deaths of Emmett Till and Tyrone Lewis. He will investigate the subject of race and violence in America through these two disparate and specific cases. Tills death in 1955 and Lewiss death in 1996 serve as historical and contemporary markers for Huffmans interest in the spectre of death haunting black men in America. His desire is to create a written and visual work honoring the complexity of the perpetual struggle for civil rights.

The LOWER MANHATTAN CULTURAL COUNCIL, New York City, received $21,000 in support of Workspace. The Council is a leading arts presenter, advocate and service provider to artists and arts groups throughout the borough of Manhattan. Workspace provides studio spaces in downtown urban environments to emerging artists. It addresses the critical need for affordable space to work, and also creates an environment for artists to learn from each other and access career-building resources. This year, in two sites, the program will allow 30 artists, competitively selected via an open call, to occupy studios for nine months. Complementary programs that strengthen the residency include stipends; opportunities to meet leading New York curators, dealers, writers and collectors; and an Open Studios Weekend held at the end of the residency. Artists are given 24-hour a day, seven-day a week access to their studios.

XENG LOR, Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, will study the history of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people in Hmong villages and cities in Laos and Thailand. Lor has videotaped interviews with Hmong gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people in the Upper Midwest and California. He now wishes to expand that investigation to understand what happened to GLBT Hmong in Laos and Thailand 30 to 60 years ago and what happens to them now. Did they ever marry? How did they live their lives in Laos and Thailand? He hopes to gather enough information through field research and taped conversations to move forward on his concept for a documentary film.
