1 – Phoenix, AZ: What it Means to be a Neighbor with Clottee Hammons


Clottee Hammons describes a Great America where there is the “cultivation of what it means to be a neighbor.” 

She is the founder and creative director of Emancipation Arts in Phoenix, which has the mission to use the arts to raise the profile of black artists in the community in Arizona. And to use the arts to create collaborations between egalitarian arts and community.

As a black woman, there was no Great America in the past, but she finds promise in the present that can grow into a better future.
