Over 4th of July weekend volunteers gathered in Annapolis, Maryland to paint a 7,000 square foot mural of Breonna Taylor.
The project was led by Annapolis-based Future History Now, a non-profit art collective that creates murals with youth facing adversity in underserved communities, according to their website.
The idea came about after co-founder Jeff “Jahru” Huntington and two of the group’s teaching artists, Deonte Ward and Comacell Brown, painted a mural of George Floyd that included the names of other Black Americans killed at the hands of police, Future History Now’s co-founder Julia Gibb told CNN.
Taylor’s death has become another flashpoint in national demonstrations over police brutality. Breonna was killed in March by three Louisville, Kentucky, Metropolitan Police Department officers during the execution of a no-knock warrant.
