BROOKLYN - Two Brooklyn art exhibits are putting a spotlight on racial profiling with inspiration ripped from the headlines.

The Trayvon Martin case is the focus of one of the showcases at the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts in Fort Greene. It features a series of five images of an American male wearing a hoodie in varying professions, including a doctor and a teacher.

The second exhibit displays conditions faced by black and Latino youth in American society during the age of Obama.

Both exhibits will be up through August.
