Interview with Carlos Walker: Artist of Race Reversal Paintings and Inspirational Activist of Prison Reform

Carlos Walker is a return guest to the Erratic Dispatches podcast after having been first interviewed in 2020. He published a collection of his race reversal paintings in a book titled What If: A Historical Fiction Novel. Carlos has had his paintings exhibited in many galleries and profiled in publications, and he has conducted speaking engagements at universities about his work. During this podcast episode, Carlos further discusses his artwork, the importance of putting yourself in other people's shoes to gain perspective and sympathy, reaching a wider audience and inspiring others after serving time in prison to become a powerful visual chronicler of racism that African Americans experience every day in America.
