Flowers for the Future

Coverage

3800 Chicago Avenue, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55407

Description

On an all-white background, the poster depicts a black-and-white illustration of a Black child seated to the left and a white police officer in full riot gear to the right.

Crosslegged, the child has short curly hair and is dressed simply in an all-white short sleeve shirt and shorts. On the ground near the child's right hand are multiple crayons, which the child has used to draw flowers and a heart that reads "BLM" for Black Lives Matter. The crayons and the child's drawings offer the only pop of color in the image. The child extends their left hand up, offering to the police officer a hand drawn yellow flower with a simple green stem.
