Art Is The Weapon

Art Is The Weapon

This podcast is not art school or intended as an esoteric discussion on styles, techniques, or what art is or is not. This podcast is about artists who create weaponized art—That is, art that advocates, motivates, educates and inspires; art that expands Black consciousness and extends Black culture.
