About the work

Painting Description:

This painting is a reminder of how many black people continue to die at the hands of police and vigilante.  “I can’t breathe,” George Floyd, 46, says repeatedly.  The message is clear, guilty until proven innocent. Shoot first and ask question later. From 1877 to 1950, more than 4,400 black men, women, and children were lynched by white mobs, according to the Equal Justice Initiative. Black people were shot, skinned, burned alive, bludgeoned, and hanged from trees.
