Courageous

The bold writings and leadership of Ida B. Wells required constant courage in the face of regular threats.

Honest

Ida B. Wells had a deep belief that problems could not be fully addressed without being honestly detailed.

Thorough

Believing in the combined power of research and story, the writings of Ida B. Wells are amazingly thorough.

Now 120 years after The Red Record was first published, violent injustice is still very much a part of American life and warrants courageous, honest, and thorough storytelling.

The way to right wrongs is to turn the light of the truth upon them.
— Ida B. Wells

We are building a team of storytellers, editors, and researchers...

 

We don't believe the full story is being told about police brutality. With a few exceptions, far too many reports are one dimensional, flat, and too often skewed in ways that don't fully value the lives of victims and the impact brutality has on families and communities.

If you are interested in joining our launch team as a writer, editor, researcher, or social media storyteller, please click below.

 

The human voice can give color and depth to both tragedy and triumph in ways that are woefully absent today. We are actively exploring the development of long form storytelling podcasts on issues of injustice and are also searching for spoken word artists to paint verbal pictures in ways that we aren't seeing done today.

 

If you are interested in using your skills to tell stories through poetry or podcasts, please sign up below. 

 

 

 

As long as we rely on mainstream networks and newspapers to be the primary photographers and filmmakers of the movement, the full story will never be told.

 

What do you know about Freddie Gray? Besides the fact that he lived and died in Baltimore, what do you know about him? What did he love? Who did he love? What were his hopes and dreams? While few things dehumanize people like police brutality, it is essential that our coverage of its victims tell rich, humanizing stories.

Where are the full portrayals of our emerging leaders? Why are those who hate emerging leaders spending more time producing films about them than those who love them?

An expression of the soul like nothing else

 

As images and videos of brutality remain on a constant 24/7 news loop, art, be it a mural, a song, or an interpretative dance, expresses the beauty and pain of our soul like nothing else. In times like this, the world needs more art. If you are interested in joining our team as a resident artist of any kind, please sign up below.
