Across history, art has led, documented, and reflected social change.

Nearly every major protest or revolution is remembered through its art, often with a single photograph or illustration coming to define the moment for generations to come.

Examples include:

As the Black Lives Matter movement fights for change, it is important to support the artists and artwork that document the protest, elevating and furthering the cause.
