The Art of Being an Activist

For as long as there has been an established Government in place, there have been Activist protesting and denouncing its crippling grip on society.  I am also aware that as long as activist have been marching, sitting and shouting for the freedom of all, Artist and their various art forms have been the first journalists on the scene giving minute to minute detail of what is happening around the world.  I am not sure if activism inspires art or vice versa but one thing is certain; one is…
