An Artivism project by Damien D. Smith



I’ve put together a visual art instillation, focusing around the recent police murders of African-Americans in the United States of America. Its purpose is to bring to light that “WE” as African-Americans are actually, humans. We feel that one of the reasons that these horrific events keep happening is that, in the eyes of certain Law Enforcement Agencies, African-Americans are not viewed as human beings.

How it went down:

On July 14, 2016 a collective of African-American artist came together to record a series of testimonials under the direction of actor/director, Damien D. Smith.

The only scripted dialogue was:
“If I should die by the hands of the police”

When putting this project together, Smith took elements of all the rich and illuminating stories that the artist told and created a narrative. None of their stories are told in there entireties for the initial release of #TheHumanityInUs.

Moral Dilemma 2 – Dark Past

You have been dating someone for an extended period of time. You are thinking about taking it to the next level. Then the person you are seeing informs you something about their past. It appears that several years ago he/she used to be a prostitute. Those years are far behind them and they are a changed person and far removed from that lifestyle. They have no diseases at all.

What do you do?

a. Continue to date them
b. Relationship ends there
