Discussions to end systemic racism and promote social equality for all are crucial to the positive advancement of our communities. The Arsht Center is committed to listen, learn and do more to stop racism and injustice.

Our commitment to uplift Black voices has led to the creation of The Heritage Project, an online artistic salon series. This free, six-part series will capture the spirit of a Harlem Renaissance salon, where Black leaders, intellectuals, activists, artists, educators and business owners come together to discuss matters impacting the Black community.
