Cey Adams, Sophia Dawson and Marka 27 Speak Against Police Brutality

Cey Adams, Sophia Dawson and Marka 27 Speak Against Police Brutality

It’s when you have an opportunity to see a piece of art on the street in person. The combination of portraits, graphic design, and text treatments may spring more from the imagination of those in the design fields but up close you can get an appreciation of the warmth and vulnerability of the figures as well. The stories that are told are down to earth, universal, and here for you to bear witness to.

BSA featured the video that accompanies this work last week for BSA Film Friday

“Quoting Isaiah 54:17 in the Bible, this mural inspires us and girds us and reminds us that when it comes to systemic racism the battle is not for the faint of heart. Can we get an ‘Amen’?”

Big up to Cey Adams, Sophia Dawson, and Marka 27.
