A Seat for Social Justice
A Seat for Social Justice is a public art project inspired by the visual artist Sam McKenzie and Hands on Atlanta. The Seat for Social Justice transforms bus seats from symbols of oppression to inspirational canvasses of hope and justice causes. “These modern day bus seats remind us of the stigma and class division that many people must still contend with, but these seats also serve as a hopeful symbol of the impact that one person can make,” said artist Sam McKenzie.
The first Seat for Social Justice debuted in Atlanta, Georgia January 16, 2006 for the Martin Luther King Service Summit and was highly successful. Additional seats have been gifted to notable institutions like The Smithsonian Institute, The Historic King Site, The National Civil Rights Museum, The Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, SCLC/Women and several libraries and schools.
