We Are One

Our hearts are broken.

Our country seems to be disintegrating before our very eyes. 

First COVID; and now this.

THIS however is not new. 

While what we are experiencing with COVID is unprecedented.

Injustice, racism and hate is not.

We are ONE race.

The Human Race. 

The arts teach us invaluable lessons: to open our ears, our hearts and our minds. 

The arts bring us together.

The arts help us transform our lives.

The arts help us heal.

We stand in solidarity with the Black artists, musicians, and professionals whose contributions to the fabric and the culture of this nation are immeasurable. 

With dedication to love and support, together we can stand united as one voice against hate, racism, and injustice.

Now and always.

In Peace
