Young activists have taken to the streets and social media in protest. Hundreds have marched across America to demand justice for Michael Brown, a 19 year old unarmed black teen who was gunned down by a white police officer, and thousands have retweeted hashtags like #BringBackOurGirls, #DontShoot and #FreePalestine to draw attention to incidents of injustice. Although the public elects politicians, many times their outcries are not heard or addressed by their governors or congressmen but by artists, musicians, and authors.
There are many examples of contemporary black artists who are actively examining and critiquing our perception of the world through visual expression and revolutionary imagery. By referencing critical moments in history their work explores both the human condition and the process of human conditioning.

Kittens + books = love
Snuggled with my own kitty, a new book, and a hot cup of tea on this particularly dark evening. Sleep well, loves.
