How I Got Over: Vision and Justice in Racialized America

Hosted by Rebecca Carroll
WNYC producer for special projects on race
Friday, December 09, 2016

For all the pain, anxiety and devastation caused by the widely circulated video footage of black lives being literally extinguished, we are also bearing witness to a pronounced moment of black cultural ascension.

Photographers LaToya Ruby Frazier and Carrie Mae Weems, with Harvard University art history professor Sarah Lewis, engage in a discussion on celebrating and advancing visual literacy around race, and what it feels like to be American and black during this dichotomous time of triumph and tragedy.

MacArthur fellow captures the town that survived

PBS News Hour’s Jeffrey Brown talks with LaToya Ruby Frazier about her art and activism.

“Braddock, Pennsylvania, was once a thriving steel town before the town’s industry collapsed. It’s where LaToya Ruby Frazier grew up, like her mother and grandmother before her, and it’s where the visual artist and 2015 MacArthur fellow has returned to document the change her community has endured.”
