Found Objects: BLM Murals in DTLB, Part Two

January 13, 2022

My phone’s Camera Roll is rife with street art that has caught my eye while out and about, but I had to go back to 2020 and finish up my series of BLM murals that I found in my neighborhood. It’s like a time capsule of sorts looking through these images. They were taken after the tragic murder of George Floyd.

The pieces that speak to me the most are the quotes written in black and in white. These BLM murals are a metaphor for the nature of race relations in the United States, and for how plain (black and white) the plight of Blacks in America for equity is. Long story short: Stop killing us!

I’ve never found a BLM mural that I didn’t like, so expect to see more of them here! My eyes are always peeled for the latest and greatest.
