THE STORY:

Not since the civil rights era of the 60's have racial tensions been so high in the United States. Racism is a mental disease that is so deeply embedded in our society that for some people, they are blinded to the injustices happening all around us. Heroes of Color seeks to ignite pride, confidence and hope to a generation of people who are grossly underrepresented. This educational series highlights the outstanding achievements of people of color (Native american, Latino, Black, Filipino, etc) in short 3-6 minute videos. Generations of children will have a different perspective on how people of their racial and/or ethnic background affected the world. In meeting with Junior High School teachers here in Los Angeles, California I was told that "This is exactly what I have been craving for in my classroom." As a financial supporter, your contribution and involvement will add to the momentum of this award-winning series that has been supported publicly by Henry Louis Gates Jr. at Harvard, U.S. Congressman Charles Rangel, and Joe Dillard who became the youngest branch president, at age 26, of the NAACP Chapter in Norfolk, Virginia. The production cost of each episode is roughly $5850. With two episodes completed, I am actively seeking grant opportunities to fund another episode. My purpose as an artist has never been more relevant, not just to the times we live in, but as a dark skinned Latino. We are tired of the negative portrayal of people of color. We are tired of the lack of representation on TV, comics, films, and history books. Heroes of Color is my attempt to do something about it. I am grateful for all of the support that I have been receiving online, and look forward to creating more wonderful episodes. I hope that you will consider being a part of it. Thank you.
