KANGALEE’S CAVE hosts critical writings by Juilliard alum (Group 25) and Actors Studio member Dennis Leroy Kangalee (DLK)  -that contributes to a radical media ecology and a new advocacy for the artist in an ever-increasingly corporate and reactionary society.  A critic for the Luminal mobile cinema and best known as the director of the cult classic As an Act of Protest, many of these writings exhibit a Fanonian-Marxist ideology that celebrates  outsider art, dissident views, independent thinking, radical Black filmmaking, the vitality of protest art  and the power of visual liberation.
