... the other Black experience

FEATURE: #ManifestJustice art exhibit in Los Angeles

"Enough is enough. We demand more empathy, more accountability, more economic opportunity, more compassion, more dignity, more power and more opportunity for all. We demand healthier communities, which means more from each other; more from our school systems and more from our judicial systems." Those are the words of Manifest Justice, the creative community exhibition. The exhibt, which took place last week - in Los Angeles’ gang affected Baldwin Village - featured protest posters, paintings, and three-dimensional works. Mostly focused on police brutality, the exhibition also touched on issues like education, racial justice, and LGBT rights. Programme coordinator Nijeul Porter says, “The idea is that art is at the center of social change". See some of the featured works below.

May I have permission to use the photo comparing the expenditures of prisons and universities in a report that I am doing about the school-to-prison pipeline and mass incarceration? It is a component of a multi-media project I am working on about social movements and this issues, which entail police brutality and the explosion of the prison industrial complex is a major motivation of the actions I have been involved in and am now writing about.
