Soon after African-African 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 foundation’s long-term 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 the public accusations of racism and a bitter
struggle for control of the collection. Permanent Collection
is a searing examination of racial politics that ultimately
ask how much space – literally and figuratively – the
white world gives to African-Americans. What is the cost
of failing to view the world through another’s eyes?
