A group of artists have painted a large mural in of Breonna Taylor, an unarmed Black woman who was killed by police officers serving a no-knock warrant.
According to CNN, artists and volunteers painted the mural on a basketball court in the suburb and home to the Naval Academy, in Annapolis, Maryland. The painting is 7,000 square feet and was led by Future History Now, a nonprofit art collective. Future History Now creates murals with youth facing adversity in underserved communities.
Future History Now co-founder Jeff Huntington and two of the group’s teaching artists, Deonte Ward and Comacell Brown, said the idea came to them after painting a mural of George Floyd.
