Kennedy Center Honors (Sort Of …)
A few weeks ago, I was excited to see the Picture Challenge group on link-sharing powerhouse Reddit had posted a challenge posed by the Kennedy Center. The challenge revolved around the Center’s “What’s Going on … Now” project, which celebrates the 40th anniversary of Marvin Gaye’s performance of his best-known record, “What’s Going On.” The project asks people to think critically about the issues, ideas, and themes Gaye presented on the record.
I selected this image for submission and just found out today that it finished in second place and will be featured on the screens at the Kennedy Center starting next week, and it looks like it will be used in materials promoting the project’s youth summit. Needless to say, I’m very ecstatic, thankful, and completely humbled.
