Jo Hines is a local artist who painted the mural at Triple S Food Store where Alton Sterling was killed by police officers. Jo grew up on that block in North Baton Rouge and has deep family roots in the neighborhood. He shows us that art is healing for both the artist and the viewer and can bring positivity to communities in crisis.
After this summer’s events, Together Baton Rouge, an interfaith organizing group, is facing the election of a new council and mayor. Can they garner the support they need to enact community-wide reforms?
