Imaginary Walls: A Film about Healing Racism A Project of Documentaries

At a time when racial friction has reached a new level, it turns out that the solution to racism is quiet and introspective.

Help Us Raise $54,000 to Finish Filming!

In the months since we started this project, we have seen how relevant and important this problem still is today, from the violent white supremacists rally in Charlottesville to the leaked FBI declaration against "Black Identity Extremists" that show.

Our film focuses on a quiet and very successful practice called a Racial Healing Circle, which was pioneered by Kokomon and Aeeshah Clottey of West Oakland. For almost 30 years they have led these circles out of their home. Their commitment to healing racism has allowed them to reach thousands of people, winning many public accolades in the process.

We are now creating an Educational Curriculum and Certification Program to accompany the film, which will be used in schools, police departments, civic groups, etc. Including the curriculum will scale this approach to racial healing to reach a much wider population.

It is our hope that by combining this heartfelt documentary with a fully developed educational curriculum, we will inspire thousands of individuals across the country to continue Kokomon and Aeeshah's story by starting a Racial Healing Circle in their own community, sparking a national movement towards tolerance and racial harmony.
