This study guide is a companion to the documentary feature film A New Color: The Art of Being Edythe Boone. Long before Black Lives Matter became a rallying cry for racial justice, artist Edythe Boone embodied it. For decades, the 80-year-old Boone has introduced underserved youth and seniors to the transformative power of art. Her collaborative mural projects have turned neglected community walls into bold commentaries on the social issues of our time. But when her nephew, Eric Garner, dies tragically in police custody, everything that Boone has worked so tirelessly for comes into question.
