A New Color, where I served as an Assistant Editor, is a feature length documentary that illuminates timely social issues and shows how the work of one resilient woman reverberates throughout a community to inspire a powerful chorus: “Our lives matter and we will not be disempowered by those who judge us for our age, gender, or the color of our skin.” An intimate portrait of somebody extraordinary, Edythe’s story shows not what it is to be Black or to lose a loved one, but what it is to be human.
A New Color: The Art of Being Edythe Boone screens as part of California Historical Society ¡Murales Rebeldes!, programming designed to explore the similarities and differences between muralism in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
