Over 200 Black healthcare workers from across the country signed up to participate in this project, which aired for ten weeks from June through September 2020.

The final episode featured a conversation between Ashley and Kimberly, reflecting on the production of the series and highlighting their favorite stories and moments.
Bill Utermohlen (1933-2007), an American painter living in London, had the misfortune to come of age as a figurative artist in an era when conceptual and abstract art ruled the day. But in 1995, Utermohlen was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The diagnosis would change his life - and transform his art. Almost immediately, he began a series of paintings called "The Conversation Pieces." The brightly colored works, reminiscent of Matisse, are set at home, featuring his wife, friends and colleagues in conversation. Notably absent - or present, but distant from the other figures - is Utermohlen himself, already isolated by his art. That distance would become more pronounced in Utermohlen's last and greatest body of work: a series of increasingly dark and grim self-portraits.
The Good Listening Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that cultivates resilience and wellbeing in healthcare communities. People feel valued and uplifted when they feel heard. We practice good listening to strengthen these feelings. The organic ripple effect of good listening fundamentally shifts how it feels to work and receive care at a hospital. By publishing the stories of our participants and the custom poems we create for them, we seek to highlight the humanity within the healthcare system. We envision a resilient world where all people experience connection and belonging.
