Black Lives Matter

Baltimore, United States of America

42 Portraits - April 2015

Statement

Organized by Morgan State University’s Visual Arts Department, Black Lives Matter is a visual response to the #BlackLivesMatter Movement. Created in 2012 after the murder of Trayvon Martin, the movement “[broadens] the conversation around state violence to include all of the ways in which Black people are intentionally left powerless at the hands of the state.” Our group action aims to shed light on the presence of invisible boundaries and limitations placed on Black people throughout different facets of our lives.
