Welcome to our Art as a Form of Activism Issue!
Our November issue is dedicated to poets, filmmakers, writers, visual artists, and feminists who utilize art as a means to inspire and empower. From the classroom, to the streets, or behind a camera lens, words and themes of self- empowerment, feminism, and activism are being spread to individuals around the world. We wanted to highlight those who are devoted activists and artists.
This month features:
- A piece by Re/Visionist co-editor Tiffany Williams that looks at two black women independent filmmakers and how they allow black women subjects occupy space in film.
- A poem titled ” Beauty Rest” by Alicia Cobb
- A review of a recent poetry reading by Mary Oliver from co-editor Emilie Egger
- A paper excerpt about themes of prostitution in early-1920s films by Emilie Egger
