Southern Railroad's Eric Reid awarded Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Fellowship

Actor, Producer, Director Eric Reid's life and art is dedicated to the examination of black and brown lives and the quality of those lives in America. He has been awarded the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts fellowship where over the next year he and 29 other fellows will be examining one very important question: What does EQUITY look like?

The YBCA Fellows program brings together creative citizens from across the Bay Area – artists and everyday people alike – to engage in a yearlong process of inquiry, dialogue and project generation. Each Fellowship cohort will explore and respond to a question that emerged from our annual YBCA 100 summit. Together, they’ll use art and culture to inspire community transformation and drive new possibilities into the public imagination. Fellows’ projects will ultimately be presented at YBCA’s bi-annual Public Square, event that provides a platform to share new information, surface big questions, and enact change.  MORE
