Artist/Activist LaToya Ruby Frazier on Art and Social Change

Art as Transformation: Using Photography for Social Change

February 12, 2023    

LaToya Ruby Frazier’s work depicts the stark reality of today’s America: post-industrial cities riven by poverty, racism, healthcare inequality, and environmental toxicity. By featuring voices and perspectives traditionally erased from the American narrative, MacArthur “Genius” Frazier not only captures our cultural blind spots—she teaches us how art is a powerful tool for making change. Frazier will join in conversation with the Rev. Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas to discuss the transformative power of art.
