Artist:
Newman Howell is a youth of the Bay Area. He is an aspiring fashion designer and dancer who has just recently graduated Berkeley High School and is going to attend the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. Newman has been active with GSA Network and LYRIC as a volunteer for the OHMY conference, a Make It Real trainer to implement AB 537, and as a member of the GSA Network Youth Council. With the poster created in the Free Zone class he hopes to penetrate the minds of youth that don't see the struggles that are thrust upon them - to help them identify their oppression and liberate themselves from it while still staying true to their dreams. His poster is a symbol for youth that need or have a hunger for a voice and a revolution.
