The Power of Youth Movements in Black History is an exhibit that showcases the spirit and fight of young Black men and women, and their allies, exhibited by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the youth of today. These images are meant to spark educated dialect around the reality of the current state of our nation. I want my pieces to evoke emotion and feelings from the viewer. I encourage everyone who is viewing my work to have an opinion and to openly express those opinions in a manner that is respectful and thoughtful...One reason I chose to attend BC is its emphasis on social justice, which is rooted in “the University's broader mission and Jesuit tradition.” I feel like I would be doing a disservice to the university and Jesuits if I chose not to practice what is being preached, don’t you agree?
