Dust & Dignity Project
Music has a long legacy of responding to social inequalities and injustices. Creating music can act as a weapon for social justice, a tactic enabling artists to use their talents and platforms to combat inequities. For this reason, Bruce Campbell Jr., Ph.D. created the Dust + Dignity project, an educational experience promoting dialogue and advancing social justice through the exploration of the relationship between music, visual art, and our society. Even its name, Dust + Dignity, points towards social activism. “Dust” represents the digging up of old records and archives, while “Dignity” represents the value of minorities during an era marred by an outing of racial ignorance that has long existed in our country and the world. What began as an audio and visual exhibition has expanded into a movement that has already received attention for its artful activism.
