Austin Beloved Community

Racism has always been at work and people have been resisting it and other forms of oppression in Austin for a very long time.    Local artist and activist Anne Lewis has chronicled this resistance and beloved community.

Austin Beloved Community is a collective project that is a shared space between organizations, artists, and all who hold close ideas of liberation, equality, and a just society.  It is an experiment in collective memory, community, and expression.
