No More Blues (2)“The #blacklivesmatter movement resonates, not only with people of color, but with all humans who are disheartened by the disparities in our social justice system,” said Black Archives Executive Director Timothy A. Barber. “Mr. Temé’s body of work provides a vivid and insightful look at the impact these injustices have on our community. Our hope, is that this exhibition will be a platform for a much needed dialogue on the plight of people of color to not just secure civil rights, but reach a platform of human rights.”

“The visual arts is often a medium used for social awareness and change. As an artist I feel like it is my obligation to do as those that came before me. Such as the first Black photographer, Gordon Parks did during the civil rights movement, as will I give voice to the people through my artistry,” said photographer Cendino Temé . “The exhibition “No More Blue” exhibition seeks to bring the social issues of police brutally and the inherent bias of the justice system to the forefront with a imagery from the BlackLivesMatter movement in South Florida.”

“The CRA is implementing a multi-faceted approach that incorporates art to help spur revitalization in the redevelopment area,  “ said Clarence Woods, Executive Director of the SEOPW CRA “Our support of  the Ward Rooming House Visitor Center / Gallery is one way that we foster creative expression so it can be viewed by both visitors and residents alike.
