The eloquent words of Malcolm and cadence of Martin so beautifully drew audiences into progressive action. The misconception of Art is that it is relegated to fine art, music, theater and areas of creative visualizations; however the art of words and conversation have done the most to inspire the masses. Because of systems designed to blind human sensibilities, we depend on creativity and artistic means to carry the messages that need to be translated.
Be encouraged to support the art, the artist, the speaker, the orator, and those who work effortlessly to create the platforms for Artistic Revolution...it is essential for our evolution.
