About Self-Evident

Self-Evident is inspired by American Portrait’s central question: “What does it really mean to be an American today?” As the US grapples with COVID-19, widespread social unrest following the killing of George Floyd and a polarizing election, the series explores American challenges and triumphs as we persevere in an especially tough year.
