Combating Racism Through the Arts

We are the intersection where art meets activism

Our Mission

Our mission is to combat racism through the arts. We are the intersection where art meets activism, combining forces to keep the desperate need for equality and justice at the forefront of America’s conscience.

Through art and education, Black in Mayberry builds awareness, challenge constructs that uphold racism and advocate for human rights and social justice in the United States.

The Documentary

Through Black in Mayberry, Black people in the predominantly white town of El Segundo have set aside their inhibitions and made themselves vulnerable in order to share their truth. We hope that these short episodes (each 3-4 minutes) on topics rarely discussed publicly will create a safe and unfiltered opportunity to learn more about what it is to be Black in Mayberry.
