Entering this new decade these words written by poet, Sonia Sonchaz, “The black artist is dangerous. Black art controls the ‘Negro’s’ reality, negates negative influences, and creates positive images,” will always resonate in mind as the definition of 2020. In the past four months, I have bore witness by the minute in quarantine (we are still in a global pandemic) logged into a device that shares images of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and George Floyd’s lives taken by police officers in real-time. I digress; agreeing and standing on the words of James Baldwin, “I can’t believe what you say. Because, I see what you do!” It’s revolutionary warrior time; be in tune with your star player. Let’s create a time-capsule this month and archive history together this summer.
