Art For Equality
By LJ and SLJ editors
The Black Lives Matter movement and recent racial justice protests around the country have resonated deeply with many Americans, including artists. During the spring and summer of 2020, following the killing of George Floyd, murals and protest art popped up in cities and towns across the country. We highlight virtual protest art exhibits that reflect on current social and political themes.
 
With the election next week, we also feature podcasts that will engage children and teens interested in learning more about voting and the electoral process.
