"An activist is someone who is not afraid to be truthful or vulnerable,” declares Amandla Stenberg in the Spring 2017 issue of Dazed. Stenberg is joined on the covers by fellow actor Ashton Sanders, whose poignant portrayal of black LGBT masculinity in Moonlight has struck an unprecedented chord. Together, they are just two young Americans using their art to move us and their voices to foster real change.
Led by these two cultural agenda-setters, in this issue we join forces with the artists, activists and free-thinkers proving that protest comes in many forms – and using their energy and poise to galvanise a post-Trump generation.
