Didn’t anyone ever tell you that art is a form of protest? As a Writing major, I’ve heard this countless times from professors. As writers, artists, musicians, etc., everything we do and everything we make can be considered a form of protesting. I’ve written stories about LGBT rights, sea levels rising, women’s issues, and more. I’ve heard songs that exist as Calls to Action, read poems that leave us thinking about social issues, and seen pieces of art that display the ugly truths about our society.
