Just purchased this book. Very cool tool for inspiration.
Last night’s art show was inspiring. The work was phenomenal. Various mediums, from collage to photography, were used to interpret the justice system and how it continues to fail us (Troy Davis being the latest example of its malice).
These are the four pieces I decided to show. They are from demonstrations that took place the weeks before Troy Davis’ murder by the state of Georgia.

Yesterday was the National Day of Protest to End Police Brutality. The family of Joetavius Stafford was present - along with FTP Movement, the Revolutionary Communist Party and members of the New Black Panther Party. There was also a black man who claimed to be an American - flanked in red, white and blue (I genuinely hope that America accepts him soon).
The cops across the street were laughing and carrying on as if a movement wasn’t unfolding before them. They assume that everyone will go on about their business soon. We will not forget. I am Joetavius Stafford. I am Troy Davis. I am Oscar Grant. I am Kathryn Johnston. I am Sean Bell.

Go in for a closer look at the ongoing demonstrations.
