Human plight is about freedom. Through out history, human plight’s ultimate goal is freedom. Freedom may have been overshadowed or even eclipsed by totalitarian, power hungry, despotic governmental, institutional, and or religious figures. We can chronicle epochs in time that may have been exceptionally brutal where institutions may have over extended their authority over people in order to control and gain power for their own benefit. It is by no coincidence that it has happened and is still happening in the places and time when education has been stifled and information has been censored. Fore instance, the renaissance birthed from knowledge. The civil rights movement hailed forth from awareness and comprehension. Movements emerge when people are enlightened. It is then when the voice of the people is heard. Only then can society become sensitive and empathetic to plight; the plight for freedom. freedom is the one thing that cannot be negotiated, debated, weighed, or suppressed. The idea is bona fide for the simple reason that nothing is better or equal to freedom. The opposite of freedom is limitation, subordination, servitude, denigration, slavery, subjugation.
As an activist, a feminist, but most of all a humanist, I will use art as my medium and platform by which to take up the issue of human plight for freedom.
