Walk in Their Shoes Agenda

This much seems clear: We must change.

Artists and arts administrators will not single-handedly heal and improve our country, but we can help to move through these times with greater clarity, direction, and purpose. In fact, we believe creative leaders MUST be involved, must be at the forefront of the messaging, of the change in culture. And we must lead by example.

Short film based on the book The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How our Government Segregated America by Richard Rothstein. Available at your local bookseller.  Go to segregatedbydesign.com to learn more about the film.
