Up Close and Cultural host Rachel DeGuzman welcomed Rochester based diversity, inclusion and social justice expert Gaynelle Wethers to talk about her experience and thoughts re the movement for more equity in America. This conversation was inspired by a recent talk, "The Art of Social Justice 2," which DeGuzman attended last Thursday at New York University – where several panelists suggested that activists promoting equity in the arts look to other sectors for partnerships and more effective practices.
