Lionel Sosa read a sign that said, “You can’t be anti-racist unless you
are actively anti-racist.” That simple statement inspired him. Lionel,
an Hispanic man living in San Antonio, never considered himself a
racist. But reading that statement moved him to take action. He realized he did not know what it was like being Black in America, but he was going to find out.
And what’s the best way to find out what life is like for someone else?
You can start by asking. He started talking to men of color from every
walk of life. He spoke with artists, business executives, educators,
doctors, and military veterans. He spoke with a bishop, a general and a
fire chief. He spoke with fathers and sons. In a few short months he
listened to the stories of 33 men and painted 30 portraits.
