“(Hamilton) if you’re erasing the characters names, is an all American story of perseverance, trying to accomplish your goals, working with people, war, etc. You can put yourself into some of those characters shoes, even if you can’t put yourself in Thomas Jefferson’s shoes, you can put yourself in the Black Thomas Jefferson’s shoes, in Daveed Diggs’ shoes.” – Zora Holness

“Politics is important, and the decisions our politicians make are important. But real change happens at the local level, it happens at a community level. People need to start taking care of each other. Once people start taking care of each other they are able to empathize with each other and learn about each other.” – Zora Holness
