In September of 2014, I sat down with artist and activist Sophia Dawson. Over the course of one afternoon at her studio in Brownsville, Brooklyn, Sophia recited her story for the camera: how she came to be a prolific painter and visual artist, how her family grounds her and motivates her, and how her dedication to her community has both inspired and informed much of her creative work. #blackartists #blackartistsoninstagram #blackexcellence #politicalart #portraitpainting #sophiadawson.

“Black TV Matters: The SOUL! of Today
This performance and conversation with Greg Tate, Sophia Dawson, and Kendra Foster explore how artists across disciplines use art as a strategy for social change and how independent media amplifies their message and documents the movements. With a nod to SOUL!, a 1970s WNET variety-talk show featuring African-American art, community and culture that was also a platform for political expression and the fight for social justice, the conversation will be captured by and aired on Brooklyn Free Speech, BRIC’s Emmy Award-winning community TV and podcast network.” .

One thing that really keeps me going is the constant reminder that I have to give back.  When I was 15 I participated in an after school program that changed my life.  So grateful to God to have had the opportunity to work with some talented young people this spring and to have had a positive impact on their lives.
