On September 22, 2018, the ArtsXchange, with the support of WRFG Radio (89.3 FM), will host the inaugural Ebon Dooley arts and justice awards. Ebon Dooley was a longtime advocate of the fair distribution of wealth; promoting tolerance, freedom, and equality for all. He led with the spirit of grassroots movement for collective action in pursuit of economic and social justice.  We are proud to recognize individuals and organizations that utilize creativity in service to the communities they work in, with, and through.
