I Am A Human Being - My Black Is Beautiful, Let Our Children Grow Up
Columbus, Ohio, USA
Three works. Left to right: a white panel with a Black man in the lower half and the words "I Am A Human Being" at the top and bottom. The next work is an abstractized black face with white lips, eyebrows, and lashes. Around the face is tan spray-paint and black text reading "My BLACK Is Beautiful." The last work is a Black girl facing left. Her hair is in two poms and behind her is a galaxy with shooting starts. "Let Our Children Grow Up!" is written beneath her in blue on orange.
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."
