“Truth Tellers” Documentary Screening
September 23 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
In Conjunction with Robert Shetterly Exhibition
Truth Tellers, by Kane Lewis Productions, is a film about American Courage. Artist/activist Robert Shetterly has painted over 260 portraits of great Americans and etched inspiring quotes into the backgrounds of each. From the fight to remove symbols of hate to sustainability and climate activism, and from whistleblowing to the rights of indigenous people, Shetterly uses his art to explore these activists’ response to some of the most pressing issues of our time.
From contemporary activists for racial justice Bree Newsome, Zyahna Bryant and Rev. Lennox Yearwood, to climate activists Bill McKibben, Kelsey Juliana, and Bill Bigelow, Shetterly puts them in the context of our great civil rights leaders John Lewis, Fannie Lou Hamer and Bayard Rustin.
These Americans Who Tell the Truth have been exhibited throughout the United States for almost two decades. Truth Tellers is both a story of Shetterly’s art and activism and a history lesson in what it means to be a citizen of a democracy. In bringing Shetterly’s message to a wide audience, Truth Tellers will spark a national conversation on truth telling.
