Video of Friday keynote: Ricardo Levins-Morales is a nationally recognized artist and activist, who went from drawing chickens on his small farm in Puerto Rico as a young boy to becoming deeply involved in political movements such as the Black Panthers and anti-war efforts in the ‘60s and ‘70s. His art and writing grow out of his relationships with communities and movements in the struggle for a more livable world. Ricardo will also sell his art throughout the conference.
