AM: Now thousands of Floridians across age, race, gender and class see the "Freedom Papers" as a vision for the future of their lives. For decades, our artists and our art has been used to exploit, lull, numb, sell things to us and to displace our communities, but we believe that the personal is political and the heart is measured by what is done, not what one feels. And so art as organizing is not just concerned with artists' intentions, but their actual impact. Great art is not a monologue. Great art is a dialogue between the artist and the people.
