We create platforms for, by, and about Black artists and thought leaders in our commitment to control our own narrative. Inspired by the story of a teacher who enlightened his photography class about the harms of using words adopted by the domain of weaponry, Don’t Shoot is a reclamation of power in not only our art, but our art spaces and art practices. Just as a still image is a suggested microcosm of space, each piece will create a narrative and share the complexities of life as a Black person by freezing moments in time.
