Racism’s Not Pretty: Fundraiser

Fundraising

Racism’s Not Pretty Campaign

 
Racism [impedes] the unfoldment of the boundless potentialities of its victims, corrupts its perpetrators, and blights human progress. Recognition of the oneness of mankind, implemented by appropriate legal measures, must be universally upheld if this problem is to be overcome. – The Promise of World Peace

Hashtag #RacismsNotPretty is a fundraising project sponsored by the Windham Willimantic NAACP Chapter. During this campaign, works of wearable art – signed pins, insignia pins, & bracelets – are offered as gifts for donations. Items are available only as long as supplies last.

The inspiration for this project is to honor George Floyd and the hundreds of people of color who have lost their lives because of racially motivated violence. After musing over the sharp edges created by racial injustices that remain unabated in our society, the theme Racism’s Not Pretty surfaced as a campaign for the artists’ work. Thus, the main color scheme for the original artwork was born: black, white, and red. The NAACP artists in residence are Alvin M. Wilkerson and Cheryl Kapelner Champ.

Donations are per your generosity and will be gifted to the Windham-Willimantic NAACP Branch minus any postage. Methods of donations include check, cash or Venmo (a free subsidiary of PayPal).
