Conversation #4: A Matter of Public Inspiration

A Matter of Public Inspiration invites a cross-section of those leading the charge to bring social justice to their communities to reflect on the landscape of their cities. At their best, monuments and public art installations can become part of a community’s psyche, acting as extensions of ourselves and our hopes and dreams. Naila Opiangah, Walter Cruz, Hank Willis Thomas, Jerald Cooper, and Kaneza Schaal share their thoughts about the fixtures in their communities that have shaped and inspired them in their life. Moderated by Niama Safia Sandy.
