Why We Started The Ida B. Well Fund!

In honor of some of our favorite disruptors: W. E. B. Dubois, Paul Robeson, Nina Simone, Toni Morrison, James Baldwin and Miriam Makeba, we are proud to launch the Ida B. Wells Fund. 
The fund is a mechanism to invest and partner with ten artists, documentarians and/ or filmmakers whose work in the disciplines of contemporary art embodies a spirit of exploration and deep inquiry and that challenge pathological notions of social and cultural hierarchy. Finalists will receive an investment of $10,000.
