We are more than individuals; we are the collective base of the next major artistic movement of this nation. The America that has built America.  The America in the streets, demanding justice for those slain by police.  The America blocking the Dakota Access Pipeline. The America who, pushed northwards by NAFTA, risks its life to cross the Sonoran desert for a chance at survival.

--Nia Witherspoon, PhD
