States of Black™ is a movement to bring awareness to systemic injustices towards the Black community via the creative arts.
States of Black™ Art Expo, is a culmination of events that not only bring together visual artists, vocal artists, and arts supporters, but we also invite the voices of local activists, advocates, and community leaders. A few activities we are planning for 2020 include: socio-political art exhibits (indoor/outdoor), panel discussions, voting workshops, community murals, street art, and live entertainment. For the younger audience we are developing a teen short film and art competition. Join our efforts in not only bringing awareness to the current political landscape, but in educating, inspiring, and motivating the black community to engage and create change.
