Teacher, painter and community activist Edythe Boone has worked at the intersection of art and community her entire life. Her work is featured in the “MaestraPeace” mural in the Mission District, the San Francisco AIDS mural and in the mural at People’s Park in Berkeley. Tackling issues such as poverty, racism, and violence, Boone uses paint to help distressed communities communicate their experiences. We’ll talk with Boone about her work and the death of her nephew, Eric Garner, at the hands of police. We’ll also meet local filmmaker Mo Morris and hear about her documentary “A New Color,” which spotlights Boone.

Guests:

Edythe (Edy) Boone, artist; community and civil rights activist

Marlene (Mo) Morris, founder of Galewind Films; producer and directer "A New Color: The Art of Being Edythe Boone"
