This is BlackGround

Soil.

Start with language steeped in racist rhetoric. From it we will discover redemptive roots key to recreation.

Wash.

Remove the racist rhetoric from its structure, so that the language can stretch out, lengthen; so its message can be mined for something more.

Seed.

Watch for words among the rhetoric that still bear witness to the truth. They are the genesis, the regeneration we are working for.

Pot.

Blackout all that remains broken so the seeds can be seen, framed within a new narrative and grown with more to gain.

Plant.

Behold the beauty within all the black.
