Portraits in Color

Dr. Frank Mirabal

A unique look at race in America through the stories of artists, entrepreneurs, educators and cultural critics. The series takes a provocative look at what it's really like to survive and thrive in a society that has been built without people of color in mind. Dr. Frank Mirabal’s experience as an artist, academic, political appointee, and cultural critic brings a unique aesthetic to the conversation. He has been a featured contributor to Governing Magazine, Ed Weekly, Hechinger Report and the Living Cities blog. A highly-sought speaker and panelist for the work he has done in the areas of race, culture, education, entrepreneurship and the arts, has led to speaking engagements at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, the Obama Foundation Summit, and the GEO Funders Conference. He has worked in leadership positions at the government and nonprofit sectors with recent appointments in two mayoral administrations. His musical career spans over 30 years, with studio and touring credits that include Lorenzo Antonio, Sparx, Soul Divine, and Yolanda del Rio. He continues to write and produce music and performs regularly with his group, Soul Divine.
