Artivism: Art and Political Response for Social Justice Against Racism

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.

Amy once asked me how many miles I'd have to go before I could be okay with myself. I thought I'd have to go around the whole world. And I don't think that anymore. I'm okay here.

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. 

❝ What I remember most about emotional abuse is that it’s like being put in a box. How you end up in there is the biggest trick – I never managed to work that one out. Maybe you think it’s a treasure box at first: you’re in there because you’re special. Soon the box starts to shrink. Every time you touch the edges there is an “argument”. So you try to make yourself fit. You curl up, become smaller, quieter, remove the excessive, offensive parts of your personality – you begin to notice lots of these. You eliminate people and interests, change your behaviour. But still the box gets smaller. You think it’s your fault. The terrible, unforgivable too-muchness of you is to blame. You don’t realise that the box is shrinking, or who is making it smaller. You don’t yet understand that you will never, ever be tiny enough to fit, or silent enough to avoid a row ❞
