St. Augustine once said “An unjust law is no law at all”.
Meaning if something degrades a human being or moral rights its ungodly therefore it should be unlawful.â€œAny law that uplifts human personality is just. Any law that degrades human personality is unjust.â€ We all watched as Troy Davis was humiliated and executed for a crime that he did not commit.The things that were done to Troy Davis were very unjust and will have an impact on our community as a whole for the rest of our lives. Â I love art and one of the best parts about blogging is being able to say what you feel about a certain situation and not care what someone else thinks. I will continue to Â fight for a “just law” on behalf of Troy Davis, his family and the African American Community. If you are in Atlanta I ask that you all come Â out to this event.
The purpse of this event is to Â reignite the necessary awarenss of the events surrounding the legal murder of Troy Davis. As with Â Sean Bell, Katheryn Johnsont, Oscar Grant and countless other victims of injustice,we forget the resposibiulites we have as individuals, as a community and as a nation, to continue to fight for true freedom and justice. This art show is a call onÂ responsibilityÂ to rally visual arts to produce pieces that challenge responsibility, create awareness, and to motivate and inspire action in out communities. There was a Troy Davis before Troy Davis and there will be many more if weÂ don’tÂ take a stance. This art exhibit is a collective of artists who are dedicating their talents to take a stance and make a statment againt injustice.
