“Alone you go faster, together you go farther.” Rob has this quote in mind as a mixed-race Japanese-American artist and activist. He discusses finding parallels to the Black Lives Matter movement amid a call for immigration reform and the way losing his job at the beginning of the pandemic allowed him to go deeper into activism.
#US - Five People. One Moment: - “Love in the Heart of the City” provides a window into the hearts and minds of men of color living in several of Philadelphia’s “arterial” corridors and neighborhoods. This deep dive shows how the 1-2 punch of the pandemic and protests over police-involved homicides have impacted their emotional health and overall well-being. We invite you to join #US as we explore “Love in the Heart of the City”. Hosted by Gabe Bryant, produced by Stephanie Renée.
