“Thus all Art is propaganda and ever must be[…]. I do not care a damn for any art that is not used for propaganda. But I do care when propaganda is confined to one side while the other is stripped and silent.” –W.E.B.DuBois (full quote found here) At Blackbird Revolt we recognize the impact of creative art forms within social justice movements and the part we can all play in furthering positive change in our communities. As a team, we want to find ways to support the causes we care about while providing opportunities for others to do the same. With our creations we aim to inspire people to engage in dialogue and activism. Blackbird Revolt aspires to break the social & political barriers that keep us caged. Our designs go beyond media and apparel, we find creative solutions to help challenge the way people think about the world.
