Ronald Draper Presents: NOTxNORMAL | Drugs in Black America

Ronald Draper Presents: NOTxNORMAL | Drugs in Black America

People of color in the United States of America have a shared experience that is seldom acknowledged within our individualized thinking spaces. Black has and will always be synonymous with strength.

Strength that often internalizes suffering because this is just the way things have always been, the way that you’ve been taught, the way that feels NORMAL. The real strength comes from liberating ourselves from this not-so-very-normal sense of normality. The hope is that this series of artwork sparks the necessary conversation to inspirre change. 

Join Ronald Draper in his new reimagined Showroom. We look forward to seeing you there.

This event is free with RSVP.
