#BlackMenDream

The recent viral photo of Ieshia Evans standing in peaceful protest as she is arrested by police in riot gear is reminiscent of photos from the Civil Rights movement of the 1960’s. The struggle for equality and respect continues in this era with the Black Lives Matter Movement. The Seattle Art Museum is hosting an exhibit called Go Tell It: Civil Rights Photography on display now until January 2018. The exhibit features work from several artists including multi-platform artist, Shikeith. Sonya Green spoke with Shikeith in May about his video project, #BlackMenDream.
