Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate;
only love can do that.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Talyor, and Ahmaud Arbery have once again brought attention to the pervasive racial violence, brutality and killing of black lives.

The LAVC Art Gallery stands in solidarity with the Black community. We believe art is a vehicle for self-expression and communication, and we pledge to be an inclusive platform that celebrates and lifts up the voices of the Black community and also extends this promise to people of the global majority. We will strive to meet the challenge of becoming a safe place where dialogue can lead to learning and growing. We are committed to disrupting systemic racism in order to advocate for racial justice and equity and will continue to seek out avenues where we can support this cause.

The LAVC Art Gallery invites you to join us in contributing to the Black Scholars Matter scholarship fund today.
