Throughout history, artistic expression has been central to the cultures of oppressed peoples. It tells our stories, holds us together when cruelty threatens to tear us apart, and shows us our worth when we are told we have so little. From Dandridge and Micheaux, Henson to DuVernay, the work of Black actors, writers, and filmmakers continues to be an immense source of pride and veneration for the Black community.
