Throughout human history, artists are often the vanguard of social commentary, helping us see the narratives of our communities in new ways. Whether on the stage, on the page, or elsewhere, artists shape the conversations we have about social and political issues. Sometimes they do this quietly and sometimes they work with explicitly provocative intentions.
