Alison Hart

Talk to me about being mixed race in America, about historical trauma and it's reverberation in present day politics and personal trauma. Talk to me about finding ancestry, digging for roots, my own Native American, African American, Irish, Scottish, English roots. Talk to me about your own roots, your own history.
Talk to me about the majority minority in this country, brown, black, mixed, people of color and our perspectives on race and racism. Talk to me about gentrification and white space privilege.
Talk to me about impermanence and the fragility of life. Talk to me about art, how art saves us all. How does it save you?
