The US Prison System is Legalized Slavery and Silence is Compliance
Hopcat, 222 W Gorham St, Madison, WI, USA
Four different works of street art are on boards. One features a Black individual surrounded by multi-colored lines with an open mouth reading “The U.S. Prison System is Legalized Slavery”. The second to the left of the door is a portrait of George Floyd wearing a pink sweatshirt. On the doorway are three fists of different skin colors under the words “Silence is Compliance”. The fourth mural is of a heart growing vines and flowers, it reads “Let Black Lives Bloom, Love is in Our Roots”.
