Rhapsody in Black

by Leland Gantt

Rhapsody in Black 

“Eventually, every person in this country wakes up to the day when for the first time, racism will actively manifest in their life. HOW profound an impact this has on you depends on where you are located in the scheme of things.” [excerpted R.I.B.} RACISM: society’s Frankenstein Monster. We created it and we can destroy it, striking at its very heart, simply by sharing information. I believe that what lies at the core of racism is ignorance – a lack of information. The direct by-product of this ignorance is fear – fear of “the other” that compels us to such constructs of “protection”. A glimpse into cause and effect, a window onto some foreign landscape, a lens for self-examination; Rhapsody in Black aims to illuminate the dark corners where fact and fiction meet fear and ignorance in the hope that it makes us all question some things we THOUGHT we already had the answers to. I’m just trying to start a conversation.
