Founder Russell G. Jones is an Auldeco, Obie and SAG Award winning actor. He has worked as a facilitator, moderator and teaching artist for two decades before starting on the path to BLIND SPOT. Inspired by Dr. Janet Helms A Race Is A Nice Thing To Have: A Guide To Being A White Person or Understanding the White Persons In Your Life and the media’s use of the term “Post Racial America” during President Obama’s first campaign, BLIND SPOT began as an artist’s attempt to engage the theater community in actively achieving more racial equity. In addition to serving on HB Studio’s Artistic Advisory Council, the Advisory Board for Developing Artists Theater Co. and being a member of the board at Ensemble Studio Theatre, he is happy to be the partner to Elz Jones and a father (figure) to Bolden and Kekoa.
