A Fearless Brother Project Presents: A Walk in the park in America - A Graphic Series: By Akibang

Monroe O'Bryant's avatar Monroe O'Bryant

The “A Walk In The Park In America” series by visual artist and photographer, Monroe A. O’Bryant, seeks to interpret the lasting effects of cultural and familial separation on Black American communities as a result of the onset of the African Diaspora. One of the intents of the series is to share perspective that explores the Black community’s dependency on the system of Capitalism and its Titans despite the national populous being largely socially and economically disenfranchised and historically regarded as languid and uninspired. Additionally, through its imagery, the series looks to interpret and disclose a narrative regarding the root cause of the genocidal effects of Black-on-Black violence and various other types of contentious dynamics that exist in the community. In the end, the objective is to not feed the fire of culturally rooted opposition but instead, create the basis upon which healthy and respectful dialogue can exist in an effort to construct a resolution that everyone can contribute to and be proud of. Open your heart and mind and let’s take “A Walk In The Park In America.”
