This board is in the collection of Save the Boards | Memorialize the Movement. On March 8 2021, this board was used in an art action coordinated by Memorialize the Movement in collaboration with Visual Black Justice. Three boards were selected for an installation outside of the Hennepin County Court House on the opening day of jury selection in the trial of Derek Chauvin.
