“Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.”

Today’s blog post features Robyne Walker-Murphy, the Director of DreamYard’s Art Center Programs, and Hector Rivera, program coordinator. DreamYard’s Early Childhood Programs are designed to give young people the opportunity to tell personal stories and explore their culture and identity through the arts. The programs introduce young people to basic art making skills, incite their imaginations and creative spirits, allowing them to share their work with others.
I have worked alongside Robyne and Hector and know them to be passionate, dedicated, and innovative artists, activists, and educators. I’m so happy to share a little bit of what they do.
Thanks Renee for the amazing post!!
