Our first Candid Conversation will feature the star of Lena: A Moment with a Lady, Syndee Winters, who will be joined by local artists for a special online discussion about passing along legends of change to new generations; the value and importance of teaching a broad, truthful history; and what the panel members believe needs to change to increase the awareness of the contributions of artists of color.
