Four works on two plywood panels. Going clockwise: A black smiley face figure is looking at a red balloon with a white heart. The next work shows a Black child sitting on a black panther with their fist raised. In front of them is a crowd of people. The next work shows a Black Power fist erupting from a stone tiled road, with "Breaking Through Systemic Oppression" in purple behind it. The final work is a Black person wearing a mask that reads "I Can't Breathe."

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."
