Launching "Building Brotherhood: Engaging Males of Color"

On Wednesday, April 8, we were at City Hall to kick off Building Brotherhood: Engaging Males of Color, our new project inspired by President Obama’s nationwide My Brother's Keeper initiative.

"I always liked art, but I never had experience before I came here. You can express your feelings through art."

Antoine, 13 years old

"Art heals, art unites, and art changes minds in convincing fashion. Art drives the agenda. Great art is never silent, can’t be ignored and serves poorly the status quo."
