Make a Difference Today —save history that must not be lost

 
 
 

Oral History Project

Our oral history project, “The Force of Ethics in Civil Rights,” began in 2005, and in early 2014 includes over 200 video interviews and scores of audio interviews conducted by journalist and Aesthetic Realism Associate Alice Bernstein with unsung pioneers nationwide —men and women of all races who deserve our nation's acknowledgment and gratitude. The purpose of this project is to preserve little  known history of the fight for civil rights—in the voices, words, and images of those who helped to make that history, and to meet the urgent need in America to understand the cause and answer to racism, explained by Aesthetic Realism, the education founded by the great philosopher Eli Siegel.

"The People of Clarendon County"

— A Book, a Play, and an Event!

The People of Clarendon County is a groundbreaking short play written in 1955 by Ossie Davis and appearing in print for the first time in the book by journalist, Aesthetic Realism Associate, and editor Alice Bernstein.
