Some of you may have already heard of Anida Yoeu Ali and seen her work, and those who haven’t will be blown away by the power of her creativity. I first heard of it in on philosufi. This artist put together the 1700% Project,
“a collaborative project utilizing art as intervention. Specifically, the 1700% Project strategically intervenes against the racial profiling and rise of violence and hate directed at Muslims in a post 9/11 era. The project challenges monolithic stereotypes of a ‘Muslim’ identity while acknowledging the significance of historical persecution.”
This video is just one part of that project… and it is definitely worth watching.
So, what do you guys think?
