The Black Artivism Capsule was brought to life following a call to action for unity during the murder of George Floyd coupled with the loss of Breonna Taylor, John Lewis, Chadwick Boseman, Kobe Bryant, and Gigi Bryant.
Inspired by the outpouring of community support during both loss and unrest, Booker turned to the arts to create a haven for the Black community.
“When George Floyd happened and we all came together, it was a shift and different from the past. It wasn’t just Black people, it was people from all over the world, which has never happened before, Booker said. “I feel like with those combinations together, love, unity, and peace, you can’t go wrong. So, with a project of this magnitude, what makes me so proud is when you look at it, you’ll be reminded of where we are now.”
