Artivism joins Orange Mound historian and resident Mary Mitchell on an artistic journey through one of America’s oldest African-American neighborhoods. Linda and Mary talk community revitalization and art’s place in activating those efforts.
Linda hears from guests Brittney and Jamond Bullock, a talented couple making waves with their work in Memphis. Jamond speaks about growing up as an artist with a message and how it led to his current position as resident muralist at Alive Paint. Brittney reveals her own experience as a former ArtUp Fellow and multifaceted textile artist with a knack for projects centered around social activism.
Linda sits down for a conversation with Justin Merrick, CEO of JMUSE Productionz in Memphis, Tennessee. They discuss the power of music as a tool for social activism, as well as explore the ways in which lyrics can motivate people and drive change.
