When West Side Story premiered on Broadway, it brought public attention to a number of the most serious social justice issues facing our country including prejudice, immigration, hatred and violence. Now, 61 years later, our country continues to struggle with these same critical problems—both to understand the injustice and to heal the divisions. Why is that? And, how can the arts—such as music, drama, and dance—help us understand the barriers and the solutions to building community?
