The testimonies from these inmates in San Francisco as part of the One Billion Rising movement are kinda moving.

 

I was skeptical about One Billion too, yet, I also understand that art and activism helps to sustain morale and engagement in social movements. This also reminds me a story in the late Derrick Bell’s Gospel Choirs where he and his fictional alter ego, Geneva Crenshaw, imagine a similar act of art in expression of activism and social change, where hundreds of women flooded a Harlem street and did the electric slide in unison for civil rights.

 

Art is change.
