Under Construction

Under Construction is a multimedia online exhibit showcasing some of the best and brightest organizations working with males of color.

A team of filmmakers, photographers, writers, and nonprofit experts worked directly with these organizations for several weeks, yielding comprehensive portraits of the services men of color receive.

Ninth in this series is Healing With a Groove. Launched in 2013 at Delta State University and funded by a $150,000 grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the program introduces 12- to 19-year olds to the cathartic art and technical science of creating their own music.
