Race matters. In this your community is no different than most places in America. How we speak about race matters too. In order to recognize and critically discuss both systemic and internalized racism we need to practice speaking through our own racial lens. We believe that by acknowledging, engaging with, and opposing white supremacy we can all make more conscious decisions as empowered members of the artistic community.

BLIND SPOT curates a content rich environment to practice this discourse. These salons are a series of facilitated discussions where videos spark small and large group conversations that lead you to build new skills to confront racism in our community and throughout our lives. Through these discussions, you learn to articulate your thoughts and feelings about race, recognize systems and ideologies that contribute to racism, and analyze your own actions as contributing to, or working against, White supremacy.

Evan as artists, our primary identities also intersect with our race, gender, sexual orientation, and myriad other characteristics and histories that make us who we are. The better we understand those intersections, and the more practiced we are at talking about these issues, the better community members—indeed, the better collaborators—we will be.

Russell G. Jones (Side Effects, Ruined, Father Comes Home From the Wars, The Americans) is an Obie award-winning actor, a facilitator, a teaching artist and the creator of Blind Spot: a series of facilitated salons for practicing racial discourse.

This project is being supported by the Bernstein Family Foundation, as this year’s Felicia Montealegre Bernstein Master Class offering. We are immensely grateful for their support in bringing these conversations to HB.
