CCCADI and MoCADA are committed to upholding a tradition of arts and activism. In the same manner in which Ida B. Wells-Barnett fought feverishly against lynchings and W.E.B. du Bois urged artists to use their talent for the sake of propaganda, our institutions encourage artists to use their voices to contribute to the empowerment of our communities. In response to Travyon Martin’s recent unwarranted murder and the consequences of being Black and male in America, artists were invited to join us in raising critical awareness in the demand for justice and the fight to end the criminalization of Black men that is an apparent result of racial stereotyping.

Join us again on Saturday, May 5th at MoCADA in Brooklyn for the opening of "In A Time of Change" an exhibition addressing the education of Black & Latino boys in the Age of Obama, featuring life-size photographs by Delphine Fawundu-Buford. That afternoon will serve as the simultaneous opening for H(A)UNTED's special public installation at MoCADA featuring the photography of Malik Cumbo, Russell K. Frederick, Jahse, Dwayne Rodgers and Radcliffe Roye including images of Lumumba Bandele, Blitz the Ambassador, Dr. Robert Gore, Steven Lawson and Sim Walker.
