I hope through this feature we can give artistic voice to those of us who fall on deafened ears. The issue of injustice and the quest for racial equality can only come through by active representation. If they can't see us, they can't hear us. I am looking for work that exemplifies this, that shows we are just as human as they are since the media seems to forget that.
