A COMPLEXION CHANGE
Inauguration Day, January 20, 2009
Barack Hussein Obama

My Thoughts on Barack Obama

In 2008, history was made when Barack Obama was elected president. This made me feel very proud to be an African American.
America has taken a big step in accepting diversity in political leadership roles. By that I mean voting for and electing our first African American president, Barack Obama. Barack Obama is an inspiration to me, because he proved that there can always be change as long as you are willing to work toward it.
I also believe, he will make every effort to find a peaceful solution to ending the war in Iraq, solving the crisis with the economy, and any other crisis that may effect America and its people in the future.
Barack Obama is an inspiration to every American - Black, White, Asian, and Hispanic.

Tyler Jerami Griffith, 12 years old
Chicago/Illinois, USA

Meine Gedanken zu Barack Obama

Im Jahr 2008 wurde Geschichte gemacht, als Barack Obama zum Präsidenten gewählt wurde. Dies machte mich sehr stolz darauf, ein Afrikanisch-Amerikaner zu sein.
Amerika hat einen großen Schritt darin getan, Verschiedenheit in der politischen Führung zu akzeptieren. Damit meine ich, für unseren ersten afrikanisch-amerikanischen Präsidenten, Barack Obama, zu stimmen und ihn zu wählen. Barack Obama ist eine Inspiration für mich, weil er bewiesen hat, dass es immer Veränderungen geben kann, so lange man gewillt ist, darauf hin zu arbeiten.
Ich glaube auch, dass er jede Anstrengung unternehmen wird, eine friedliche Lösung zu finden, um den Krieg in Irak zu beenden, die Wirtschaftskrise zu überwinden und jede andere Krise, die sich in Zukunft auf Amerika und seine Menschen auswirken mag.
Barack Obama ist eine Inspiration für alle Amerikaner - Schwarze, Weiße, Asiaten und Lateinamerikaner.

A tribute to

Chancellor Willy Brandt
"The future will not be mastered by those who dwell on the past."

Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
"Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable... Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals."

President John F. Kennedy
"We must never forget that art is not a form of propaganda; it is a form of truth."

President Barack Hussein Obama
"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek."

About fountainhead

Griffith Prof. Donald Muldrow
(Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre/Black International Cinema Berlin/The Collegium - Forum & Television Program Berlin/Cultural Zephyr e.V.)

Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre is a production, performance and distribution unit, which was initiated and developed by Prof. Gayle McKinney Griffith and Prof. Donald Muldrow Griffith, both experienced artists from the U.S.A.
Fountainhead® engages people from various national, cultural, ethnic, socio-economic, religious backgrounds, and sexual identities, and works in a variety of artistic and cultural areas, with the goal of creating, experiencing and communicating intercultural exchange within its projects and to the world community.
Since its founding in 1980, Berlin/Germany, Fountainhead® has presented a variety of international, intercultural and interdisciplinary productions in the areas of dance, theatre, film festivals, television programming, film distribution, publications, seminars, exhibitions, workshops and musical presentations.
One of the productions is the annually presented Black International Cinema Berlin, which was founded by Fountainhead® in 1986 in Berlin/Germany and since then, has been produced and directed by Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre on a regular basis in Berlin/Germany, other European and US-American cities.
The festival screens cinema from the African Diaspora and other films from varied intercultural backgrounds or perspectives.

Black International Cinema Berlin originated from the Black Cultural Festival, which was produced and directed by Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre in 1986 for the first time in Europe, a 3-week event in Berlin, which presented the contributions of Black people to world culture through film, theater, dance, music, workshops and seminars, and was an homage to the legendary tap dancer, Carnell Lyons.
The venues were the Theatermanufaktur am Halleschen Ufer from March 3-16, music – dance – theatre; Hochschule der Künste Berlin on March 11, symposium; Kino Arsenal from March 17-23, film.
Organization and Artistic Direction: Prof. Gayle McKinney Griffith (USA/Berlin), Prof. Donald Muldrow Griffith (USA/Berlin), Donald Muldrow McKinney Griffith II (USA/Berlin), Dr. Ntongela Masilela (South Africa);
in cooperation with: Prof. Dr. Abdul Alkalimat (USA), Uazuvara Ewald Katjivena (Namibia), Getinet Belay (Ethiopia), Joliba Africa Center; Organization: Erika Gregor (Arsenal Cinema, Germany); Organization Assistance: Annette Koschmieder (Germany)

Additionally, Fountainhead® produces and directs since the founding in 1995, the weekly intercultural television magazine program THE COLLEGIUM – Forum & Television Program Berlin, broadcast Thursdays from 9-10 a.m. and Saturdays from 10-11 a.m. at Alex - Open Channel Berlin, and furthermore televised in Magdeburg, Wolfsburg, Dessau and additional cities.
In 1990 Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre established Cultural Zephyr e.V. as a not for profit organization, which administers the cultural and artistic undertakings of Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre.
