With this in mind, ColorOfChange.org commissioned eight artists of color from all across the United States to create depictions of what the future could look like for black communities. Utilizing diverse styles and vibrant imagery, these artists have created works that juxtapose possibilities of a brighter, more sustainable future with portrayals of dystopias where social ills and inequities remain entrenched. Each piece draws on the experiences and insights of the artists, as well as their hopes and dreams for what the future could hold. From literature to music to dance, art has always been a catalyst for social progress for black communities. The Future of Equality art project aims to spark change in the movement for environmental justice, bringing the voices of black folk to the forefront and ensuring that sustainable futures are also equitable ones.
For more than 10 years, ColorOfChange.org has been dedicated to fighting racism, sexism, bigotry, inequality and injustice at every level of society. Now we’re going to bring that same fervor to the environmental justice movement. We won’t stop until black communities and other communities of color are centered as we all fight to create a healthier, more sustainable world.
