Actress Racheal Ofori called on her fellow creatives to bring to life her visual piece on racism.
She says, “I wrote it because recent events have really put race at the forefront of conversation in a way that surprised me as if a big secret had been revealed to the world. Racism manifests in different ways in different countries, and this myth that it’s an American problem has to be debunked. It’s a learned construct that we have to actively unlearn, and it’s literally everywhere. Rather than write a post I wanted to hear a collective black voice expressing that so I wrote the piece, and asked people if they would like to be involved in reciting it, and then edited it together.“
