Photographer and Activist LaToya Ruby Frazier Speaks in Corning


The Rockwell Museum welcomes TED Fellow LaToya Ruby Frazier, who will deliver a talk, ‘Art and Empathy: Storytelling for Social Change’.

“For LaToya Ruby Frazier, art is a weapon – a catalyst for social justice. Her photographs and videos document today’s America, including her native Braddock, Pennsylvania. Her work amplifies the stories of post-industrial communities– cities and small towns riven by poverty, racism, healthcare inequality, and environmental toxicity. Bridging the personal with the social, her powerful gorgeous work amplifies the voices of the vulnerable and transforms our sense of place and self.”
