Untitled artwork by Lawrence Jenkins

rt allows me to think and create freely. To bring out the essence of what I'm drawing in revolutionary ways, and unlock my imagination to the vastness of possibility. In my daily fight for survival, freedom and peace I like to reshape the theories and practices of political prisoners and revolutionary thinkers before me. I'm grateful to creativity for allowing space for my mind and spirit to be free, although my body is captive. Art is liberation.

Lawrence Jenkins is a political prisoner (Free Lawrence Movement), co-creator of Liberation Media Northwest, and business owner for Blackseed Consulting. He teaches art, history, and sustainable agriculture inside/outside of prison.
