a new black arts movement is painting a new aesthetic, one in which we liberate ourselves from our oppressors. we are revolutionary matriarchal maroons.

This is a movement building upon the foundations of the Black Arts Movement of the 1960’s founded by Baba Amiri Baraka, Sonia Sanchez, Maya Angelou, Nikki Giovanni, all freedom fighters, and our many other ancestors long before and after in the struggle for liberation.

We have launched the reinvention, re-imagining the significance and necessity of a Black Arts Movement for today that is: internationalist, revolutionary matriarchal, and eco-socialist. A movement supporting majority oppressed nationality leadership and valuing the principles and characteristics of indigeneity. A new black arts movement views art as equivalent to politics.

Free the land. Free ALL political prisoners.
