Chicago community leader and activist, Jeff Beckham Jr. shares
his journey as an artist and how it ties into storytelling and activism.
Art, like any other form of creative expression is a free-yielding form of freedom. With each brush stroke, the artist chooses their source of inspiration both externally and internally. Creative inspiration can be as simple as listening to traffic passing by on the street, or as complex as social and economic discrimination.
