“I wish I could say
that racism and prejudice were only distant
memories. We must dissent from the indifference.
We must dissent from the apathy. We must dissent
from the fear, the hatred and the mistrust…We
must dissent because America can do better,
because America has no choice but to do better.”
- Thurgood Marshall
We must join together and immediately take action
to actively eradicate structures of white
supremacy and simultaneously take action against
anti-environmentally responsible policies and
behaviors in our culture before we destroy
ourselves and all other life forms of our planet!
a racist society, it is not enough to be
non-racist. We must be anti-racist.”
- Angela Davis
In my classes, I vow to always
teach from an actively anti-sexist, anti-racist,
anti-exclusionary perspective. My students will be
exposed and indoctrinated to a globally
multi-cultural, racially and fully gender
inclusive perspective in all course work with
particular emphasis upon an inclusive revision to
history, history of the arts and photography. Inclusion and equity will be an overarching theme. The specific focus in all of my coursework is the development of each students individual artistic
discipline and creative practice.
Art and Artists have always been
political and activistic.
artist and an activist are not so far apart.”
As Artist Producers we define and redefine the culture and the culture
must be change(d).
