They Tried to Bury Us

Coverage

Detroit, Michigan, USA

Description

Painted on a brick building, this piece consists of a red and pink background with a child in various colors of blue taking up the majority of the wall space. The child is holding yellow flowers in a raised hand, and wears a green watch in addition to a necklace that says 'Light.' Beside the child's raised arm, there is white text that reads "They tried to bury us. They didn't know we were seeds."

Anti-racist and activist work has been an ongoing part of this artist's work, and this piece predates the murder of George Floyd.
