Clarks in Jamaica
Clarks in Jamaica tells the story of the phenomenal popularity of Clarks shoes in Jamaica – from their initial journey from the quiet village of Somerset to the West Indies one hundred years ago, through to their adoption as the rudeboy and Rasta shoe of choice during the 1960s, and the filtering of this popularity into reggae and dancehall song lyrics.

A Sunday Kinfolk Story (Intro and Casting) + Hamilton Multimedia, LLC 

       ”What if Superman grew up as a black boy in America?” 

Written by D. VerrtahMarcus Smith (Behind The Lens), Russell Hamilton (Multimedia), King Texas (Creative Director) and myself, Renata Cherlise (Creative Director and Creator of Lost in Urbanism + Sunday Kinfolk)

While staring in the face of racism, this story follows a young man’s journey as he comes to terms with his identity. As we extract events from America’s history and weave them with fictional undertones, we explore the truth behind his mother’s legacy, his father’s affiliation with the movement and the makings of a black superhero.

Visit Sunday Kinfolk to get additional information on casting and creative collaborations with this project.

Black Superman. A Sunday Kinfolk Story… “What if Superman grew up as a black boy in America?” 

Thank you everyone for viewing the introductory video to this story and spreading the word. Although we’ve received a pretty fair amount of inquiries, we’re still accepting submissions.. Especially black women. 

As we will be using several mediums with this story, we’re not necessarily looking for just actors and folks who may model but rather expressive creatives. 

Visit the website for additional information on casting and creative collaborations with this project.
