Interview with Kevin Pullen - " We are all people, of all colors"
Entrepreneurs like Kevin Pullen in Brunswick, GA and others are using the arts as a catalyst for cultural understanding, connectivity, and empathy for one another. Recently, our team had the opportunity to sit down with Pullen to discuss his newest project, Colors.
“Colors came about when someone asked me about my vision for what I do as an artist. I had spoken to the idea of having an African American museum, a heritage and cultural center, but I don't want to be a museum of Black people by Black people and for Black people, because that defeats the purpose of having the institution,” shared Kevin. During our time with Pullen, he emphasized the value of sharing experiences to strengthen cultural ties in a community.
“If you really don't know me and my culture, or I really don't know you and your culture, then it’s easy to take license to hate you, to prejudge you, to do all those other things. If I do know you, I revoke that license.”
