Roots

Understanding your roots is key to understanding where you are and where you are going. This collection of performances and artist monologues recounts the unique and complex story of what it is to be a person of color in a world that all too often works against you. With artists of Native American, Dominican, Puerto Rican, Mexican, Black, and African identity Culture Creators is uniquely positioned to speak on the importance of diversity from often overlooked perspectives.
