Creatively processing how racism affects us all.
It’s not an easy topic to discuss.
The Black Bodies Project is dedicated to providing opportunities for you to make the issue easier to digest. Because then, perhaps you will discover what you can do to eradicate it.
Through multimedia — films, literature, art, imagery, performance — we will strive to help you understand how systems of racism, which are most damaging to black citizens, play out in our lives today.
“Benevolence In Black.”
“Benevolence In Black” introduces you to 30 phenomenal black Austin-area visionaries who, in some remarkable way, give to their communities.
The book includes 60 full-color portraits and short essays written by each individual describing what it means to exist in the world in their black bodies.
A portion of the proceeds will help the Black Bodies Project bring you more informative, compelling content spotlighting the black experience.

Do not be colorblind.
You must see color to see racism.
When you say you don’t see color, you’re saying you don’t see us. And if you don’t see us, you won’t see racism. We help you begin to make that connection. Only then can any real conversation about racism begin.
