Title

You Will Not Take Our Power - The Earth Is But ONE Country

Coverage

Columbus, Ohio

Description

Three painted panels make up two works. The first two panels have a white background on the lower half, and black clouds on the upper half. On the bottom are four child-like figures holding up their fists and wearing black clothing with gold crowns. At the top of the left panel are three white outline portraits of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and Tyre King. Each were killed by police.

Gold letters at the top of the panels read "#Say Their Names! Breonna Taylor George Floyd, Tyre King" and "You Will Not Take Our Power. You Will Not Take Our Streets."

The second work is a panel painted green with chalk messages such as "Equality Saves Lives," "Stand Together," "To Dismantle Systemic Racism we must dismantle the system," and other messages.

White painted letters at the top read "The Earth is but ONE country and Mankind it's Citizens," "Vote" and "Love", the latter being above a black and white USA flag with a heart and a hand making a peace sign.

From the contributor: "My wife and I went downtown to photograph the protest art as we knew that it would not last (for a variety of reasons). The military was still on the streets, a curfew was still in place, and police were still assaulting innocent protestors. Columbus is the capitol of Ohio, so much of this was around the capitol building."
