In this painting I have captured a moment during a march through downtown Atlanta in support of the unjust killing of Michael Brown. These youngsters have taken a step of protest to the streets and I wanted to capture that determination of the marchers in the faces and their posture.
On the American flag they carry, I have placed the images of those killed while unarmed by the police with names and dates on the red stripes of the flag. On the white stripes I have placed the many marches held around the country in solidarity of these atrocities.
