A HUGE thanks to the creative team at WCET, led by Colin Scianamblo, the very talented Megan Piphus, who wrote and performed the songs, funk legend (and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer) Bootsy Collins, for his creative contributions and producing work, as well as all of the artists who built the sets and made the puppets, and the team from Madcap Puppets, for bringing many of these characters to life. This project also would not have been possible without the support of the SunTrust Foundation, through its “Lighting the Way” award.

This video project was an enormous undertaking, but everyone’s hard work has paid off in a much larger audience of $martPath users, and accolades like these!

Through their analysis, Center researchers found that in 2018, Black women held 10% of jobs in the five lowest-earning occupation groups, but less than three percent of jobs in the five highest-earnings occupation groups.
