Othello: The Remix at Cook County Jail

One of the most rewarding events we’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing. Not only did we get to bring our art to those in serious need of healing, but we got to do that in the city we grew up in, in the largest jail in the country. Check out the mini-doc we made about that very special day. Watch the video.
