Top 6: July 7th 2021
This Independence Day, Courageous Conversation Global Foundation (CCGF) is shining a light on the discrepancies in the history of freedom for Black people with their new campaign, '400 Years at Half-Staff'. The campaign leans into this past year of racial reckoning in America, acknowledging that while many have only now realized the systemic bias that this country was built upon and continuously perpetuates, the reality is that Black America is all too aware of the biases suffered in this country for over 400 years. Created by Goodby Silverstein & Partners, '400 Years at Half-Staff' lowers the culturally iconic African American flag to half-staff to illustrate the point that Black Americans have been suffering since slavery. And even though enslaved people finally discovered they had been freed on June 19, 1866, Black America still suffers. The project has been documented in this film. Embroidered with a vigorous declaration of Black truth, the flag can be seen through a powerful film and an Instagram lens that allows users to interact with the flag in real life using image-recognition technology.
