Thornton Dial is a man of truth – unclaimed by the pretentions of high art, the Alabama-native creates pieces constructed out of everyday objects strewn throughout the home. The truth lies in the message behind his work – simplicity in metaphor, a reconstruction of the civil rights-era racism through the placing of mop strings or scavenged tin. Dial utilizes commonplace, intricately Southern scraps to often depict America’s most glaring realities: racism, war, bigotry and homelessness.

When They See Us,” has been the topic of nearly everyone’s conversation over the course of the last two weeks. The Netflix miniseries directed by Ava Duvernay touched on so many important subtopics, it’ll make your head spin. I know that not everyone has had the chance to see it, and some have even chosen not to because of how difficult it is to process the emotions that will be triggered. The story is about five teenage African American and Hispanic boys who were sent to prison after being wrongfully accused and ultimately convicted for a rape and sexual assault of a white woman that they did not commit. As a journalist, one thing that was troubling to watch was the media’s biased coverage of the events. While that part of the series was just a mere subplot,  I couldn’t help but think how unfortunate it was that there was really no fair representation of those young men in the media. That probably wouldn’t have been the case had the North Star been around to speak truth to power. Giving the young men a fair representation in the media, rather than prematurely concluding that they were guilty.
