Community Philanthropist Tony Lewis, Jr Curates
"Collateral Damage": A Photo Exhibition in Washington, DC
Showcasing the "Other" face of Mass Incarceration

Washington, DC (Friday, June 27, 2014) - It's the most talked about subject on your local 
news station and major cable networks, however it's missing an element when discussed. 
Mass incarceration is definitely at an all-time high, but it's the families and friends who are
 left to deal with the true "reality" of the situation. America is the number one jailer in the world
 with over 2 million people being incarcerated, which leaves millions of families with loved ones 
behind bars and many children without parents.

On a late Sunday afternoon in the Nation's Capital, individuals will get a chance to view the
 "other" face of incarceration. "Collateral Damage" is the creation of Tony Lewis, Jr who
 is a well-known community leader in the Metropolitan area. "Collateral Damage" is a photo 
exhibit that will showcase the faces of the loved ones of those incarcerated. Mothers, Fathers, 
Sisters, Brothers, Uncles, Aunts, Cousins & Friends will all be highlighted during this one time 
showing. This exhibit will tell their story of pain, isolation, and sense of abandonment. It will force
 the viewer to stare into the eyes of the other faces of mass incarceration and realize it could be 
any one of them.

When asked about the reason behind curating such an event, Tony states
 "The motivation behind this exhibit was to illustrate the hardship of having an incarcerated
 family member and advocate for resources aimed to support those people; in particular
 the children. It is about exploring the mental and emotional anguish that these people 
experience during the incarceration of their family member who could be their parent, 
spouse, aunt, uncle, or sibling. These people are in need of resources centered around 
mental health, education and mentoring services. Incarceration is a family experience; 
we all do the time just some of us remain in freedom."

"Collateral Damage" will take place Sunday, July 6th 2014 from 4-8 PM at Blind Whino
 located at 700 Delaware Ave SW, Washington, DC. To attend this complimentary event,
 please RSVP at http://collateraldamage.splashthat.com/.

About Res 
This month's feature is an artist who made her presence known in 2001 with her debut album How I Do. While it took the mainstream years to catch on, those in the know, knew from the first listen that Res was a force to be reckoned with. Since that release, she has maintained her presence by appearing wherever progressive music and culture find themselves intertwined.

She has appeared on the Red Hot Organization's compilation album Red Hot and Riot, a tribute to Nigerian musician Fela Kuti. Res also performed a cover of the Jefferson Starship song, "Miracles" for the Jennifer Lopez movie Maid in Manhattan. Her second album Black.Girls.Rock! was released digitally and is currently available on iTunes. Currently, she has an EP out entitled ReFried Mac which features 5 of Res's favorite Fleetwood Mac songs with her third full length album due out this year.
