Brolly Arts in partnership with Black Storytellers of Utah, Black Social Change Utah Documentary participants, and, Marian Dora Howe-Taylor have been working on a multi-disciplinary project, Black Social Change in Utah (BSCU): Preserving the Story. BSCU came about in response to growing awareness, questions and experiences of racism in Utah. The project invites us to celebrate, listen to, view and learn from Black leaders, artists and social change agents in our community who believe that change, such as attaining equality, is possible. The result is the creation of the BSCU documentary with outreach programming to follow. DONATE NOW
The documentary BSCU integrates haunting and hopeful narratives, film, soulful spirituals, choreography and theater to bring to life the forgotten and unknown stories that need to be heard in order for our community to reconcile and grow. The film guides viewers to open their hearts to what it feels like to maintain “hope” again and again in the face of unsolicited adversity. Themes of education, resilience, and faith propel the film unwrapping the key to a culture whose very foundation is built upon a forged resiliency and grace.
Brolly Arts is dedicated to creating meaningful art and vibrant communities through artistic and civic collaboration and experimentation. As a non-profit umbrella organization, Brolly Arts is committed to increasing the opportunities and impacts of artists and arts organizations in Utah.
Please join us in creating awareness and developing a greater understanding of the Black experience in Utah in an attempt to expose and address the undercurrent of unseen and silent racial inequality.
