RAISING HANDS RAISING VOICES
A Collaborative Protest Art Exhibition
Raising Hands and Voices is a collaborative exhibition organized by students and faculty at the Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC) and the Maryland Institute College of Art  (MICA). The exhibition, which is planned to coincide with the fourth annual CCBC Africana Studies Independent Film Festival, will include artwork addressing the themes of racial profiling, police violence, and tension between the police and the Baltimore community. These issues are explored in the film Profiled, which will be featured in this year’s film festival. The purpose of the Raising Hands and Voices exhibition is to increase awareness of systematic inequalities in policing that affect communities of color while bringing the experiences of victims of police violence, who are often unacknowledged, from the margin to the center.
