Elena Georgiou, Director of Goddard’s MFA in Creative Composing Program, described Mr. Dunn’s work as “piercing. His straightforward, stripped-down design allows nothing to get in the way of the story. And what is that story? It is an up-close and individual examination of how racism and sexism are perpetuated in modern-day America.”
