Anthony R. Page, the Executive Producer of the show shared his perspective on the theme. "Black people in America have worked diligently for many generations to build bridges to better futures, but all too often, America put up boundaries to limit what we could become. However, for every boundary, we found a way to build a bridge. We have made some progress, but not enough, therefore, more bridges must be built, and more boundaries must be eliminated. The struggle across our American experience continues."
