by Thomas Gibbons

Synopsis: Soon after African-American businessman Sterling North becomes the new director of the Morris Foundation,
he discovers that this world-famous art collection includes several significant African sculptures tucked away in storage.
His proposal to add them to the public galleries is opposed by the foundations long-time education director, who is loyal
to the idiosyncratic wishes of the late Dr. Morris. Spurred on by a zealous local journalist, this clash quickly escalates to
public accusations of racism and a bitter struggle for control of the collection. Permanent Collection is a searing examination
of racial politics that ultimately asks how much space -- literally and figuratively -- the white world gives to African-Americans.
What is the cost of failing to view the world through anothers eyes?
