Renowned artist, Charlie Newton made his hometown of Chattanooga the first stop to unveil his inaugural traveling exhibit, The Black Bible. The art exhibit features abstract paintings that are inspired by stories and people from the Bible. Each painting evokes emotions and captures moments in time.
‘We don’t need to re-write the Bible,” said Charlie Newton. “We need to reconstruct our concepts percepts and precepts of the Bible as written. History, as well as Bible precepts and percepts, are for the most part of majorly European influences. The distillation of the historicism of the Bible has been dramatically and is being dramatically changed and reformed due to the diaspora peoples (in America) awakening to the false narratives put forth by white supremacy.”
