About This Issue

I was born by the river in a little tent/
Oh and just like the river I've been a-running ever since/
It's been a long time, a long time coming/
But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will

These lyrics from Sam Cooke’s 1964 song A Change is Gonna Come continue to remind us that the struggle against anti-black racism has been ongoing for centuries. The killing of George Floyd on May 25, 2020 has reignited calls to defund the police and for society to recognize systemic anti-black and other racism. In a time of pandemic, as we struggle with the COVID-19 Coronavirus, we also envision a future of release from the carceral state and the possibilities of art to find a way forward.
