If There Is No Struggle

This short documentary explores urban and public art through the lens of a young photographer, while weaving in historical quotes from many prominent figures, such as Gordon Parks, Angela Davis, Frederick Douglas, Melnea Cass, Rosa Parks, and Malcolm X.

It’s a poignant reflection on art, democracy, diversity, and modern society.
