Bruce Gallery WENSINARS VIDEO SOCIAL ACTIVISM by Roland Slade - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
Where do we see these videos?
And can you please tell us a little bit about your community activism?
You are critical of celebrities as being leaders of the Black community - why is this a problem? Why is this happening?
Can you post the links in the chat?
What is the significance of "cleeze"? Is that the name you use when creating your art, kind of like a pen name? If so, what made you choose it?

Angela Davis’ latest book, Freedom is a Constant Struggle, is fantastic https://www.haymarketbooks.org/books/780-freedom-is-a-constant-struggle
Do we have time for another one of Roland’s film shorts?
Do you think people are desensitized to the real meaning behind the industry and with the consequences in mind do it anyway?
I think he needs to also share his sound
Theres a button in the corner when you choose which screen to share
Roland it’s not so much as a question but a comment. I want you to know that in the time I have been following you and the time we have shared as creatives I appreciate the love you have shared and the inspiration you set. Youre greatness
Roland - I understand your work will be a part of the LET’S PRETEND show at the Bruce Gallery in September - what will you be showing then?
So are you saying that the entertainment industry is basically just a huge opportunity for censorship of progressive voices?

I’ll also recommend the Rutger Bregman book Utopia for Realists - like the Angela Davis book, it shows us the larger, national and global, systems that control our economic realities, power structures, etc. - another honest and excellent examination of systems that shape our lives. https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2019/7/26/8909436/rutger-bregman-utopia-for-realists-ubi-open-borders
Tony - what you described about getting famous in the music world - sounds like the art world.
