Watch: Through the Eyes of Art - Conversation on Mental and Physical Health in the Black Community

Through the Eyes of Art - A Black History Month Celebration - The Cookout

The Chosen Few and Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP) present the 8th annual Through the Eyes of Art, a Black History Month celebration. The event brings together artists, community leaders, politicians, and tastemakers from across the state of Washington to celebrate the Black experience.

This year’s theme is The Cookout, and throughout the month, we’ll be immersing ourselves in programming that explores amazing soul food cuisine, spotlights Seattle’s Black-owned food establishments, and dives deeper into issues related to health and wellness, food justice and access. Check out our complete schedule of online events!

This past Friday, February 12, we kicked off Through the Eyes of Art, a Black History Month celebration with a panel of Black personal trainers and therapists discussing mental and physical health in the Black community.

The conversation featured Andrew "Bull" Stewart of Columbia City Fitness CenterToni Bailey of Zumba Fitness, Gabrielle Oglesby of SunEarth Healing, and Elijah Baker of Always Winning Fitness. Check out the full video embedded above!
