Throughout February, we're spotlighting Black creators we admire and who inspire us through a weekly series of video interviews.
This week, we speak with globally renowned artist, educator, and Kickstarter creator Steve Locke. He discusses how Black artists have always excelled at making their own way, the difference between making art and creating content, and Auction Block Memorial, his Kickstarter campaign to fund a public art project inserting the living history of the enslavement of Africans and African-Americans into the historical narrative of Boston. (Read about how, when when a few detractors ultimately made the project impossible, Locke's Kickstarter supporters backed him up even more.)
