Artist, Masud Olufani, to discuss ‘The Color of Justice’ at the Albany Museum of Art
ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Artisit Masud Olufani is set to discuss inequalities and injustice in America through a panel discussion called ‘The Color of Justice’ at the Albany Museum of Art Tuesday, April 30 at 6 p.m.
Jimmie Gardner, a man imprisoned for 27 years in West Virginia and released in 2016 after being proven innocent, is also set to join the discussion panel.
Gardner has been an advocate for wrongfully imprisoned men and women since his release.
“My main position is to inform individuals on how you deal with whatever you’re going through in your life, whatever perceived rough situations and how you can deal with it and how you can come out a better person and being in a better state of mind," said Gardner.
The event will be moderated by U.S. District Court Judge Leslie Abrams Gardner.
It is free and open to the public.
“I hope people come out thinking expansively about creative ways to respond to challenging circumstances and situations, be they personal or societal. I really would like to encourage people to begin to consider some of the marginalized groups in our society, what they may be going through, how that informs the larger community, how the well-being of my brother and sister, regardless of where they come from, impacts my own life. It’s that interconnectedness. History doesn’t belong to just one group, but to all of us. It links us all.”
