The Revolution is a unique form of social justice art inspiring change. It originated from The Rainbow Coalition, a historic anti-racist, anti-class movement first created in 1969 by Fred Hampton of the Black Panther party, William Fesperman of the Young Patriots Organization and José Cha Cha Jiménez, founder of the Young Lords.
This diverse rainbow coalition represents different communities working together and creating something powerful. The Revolution serves as an inspiration for all and provides an opportunity to recognize the beauty in diversity and how much more powerful we can be when our different perspectives can come together and create something remarkable!
We hope that this piece serves not only as a reminder of the struggles many have faced throughout history but also to raise awareness about how collaboration among people from different backgrounds gives us strength as individuals, communities, and even nations.
Let us use this beautiful form of social justice art to start revolutions that bring about positive change!
