Sit-ins, protests, speeches, letter writing campaigns, articles and, today, social media. From Black Nationalism to Black Economic Empowerment, Dana Chandler has been a citizen activist since he was in his teens. What has life been like as a citizen activist who is also a professor, father and artist? Did activism come before art and drive the art or did art come before activism and shape his activism.
On our next show, we'll continue discussing Chandler's life as a citizen activist, including his connections with controversial figures like Minister Don Muhammad and Louis Farrakhan.
Called "controversial", a "Black Power Artist", "activist artist" and "Outsider Artist", Chandler, 70, was born in 1941 in Lynn, MA. He is best known for the edgy, colorful, controversial and hotly-debated artistic statements of his 1960’s-1980’s works.
It's good to talk.
