Title

Chalk Wall with George Floyd Tribute and Community Messages

Coverage

Portland, Oregon, United States

Description

Plywood panels covered in chalkboard paint have chalk messages from bottom to top. Messages include "We Portland will be the change," "Portland Fallen!" "PPB," "White Supremacy," and "MAMA."

A plain panel covers some of the messages. Said panel has "BLM" and other graffiti on it.

A large portrait of George Floyd in chalk is the the right. Beyond the portrait are plain panels with buffs and painted text reading "Your store can re replace a life." and a cardboard sign reading "Where is Melissa Hooks?!!"
