MajorIndieArt got the privilege of witnessing the #UniteAgainstRacism event. This was a collaborative effort by artists to create a piece of visual art that embodied their unity against Racism. With the increased attention on police brutality against Black Men, it was refreshing to see artists using their strengths to do their own form of protests and express their feelings. The end piece was dope to say the least. Shout out to Christian Locke for coordinating the event. Peace to everybody that was involved.
“Unity is strength… when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved.” – Mattie Stepanek
