Art and Academics
Quotes & Statements:
“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
“Anywhere on this Earth its no longer enough…and lest we forget has never been enough.”

“In a racist society, it is not enough to be non-racist. We must be anti-racist.”

In my classes, I vow to always teach from an actively anti-elitest, 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 of the arts and photography. Inclusion will be the overarching theme within the development of each students individual artistic discipline and creative practice.
Art and Artists have always been political and activistic.
We define/redefine the culture and the culture must be change(d).
