I am so impressed with your digital production. Especially powerful is the racial history. We desperately need the equivalent of “White Christmas” for the 21st century to help all of us come together as Americans to overcome our polarized cultural and political status. I recommend that we share this widely so everyone can watch, learn and begin the change. Thanks!

The exhibit was great! It was so good to step back and think about our history and where we have come from. Also very fitting for this year as we feel sorry for ourselves with the pandemic and all. I hope many people will view it. It’s worth it.
