Empowering Him: Black Skin Photo Exhibit

"Black Lives Matter" by Vincent Marc
Art ignites change. 
A statement heard many times but may not be understood. Many see art as just pictures in frames hanging on the wall but art can be and actually is so much more then that. Art can capture the essence of a single moment and tell a story that can inspire someone or many. It can make you think or even provoke you to do more.
