Stay Woke, 2016

24” x 12”

Acrylic Glass, LEDs

Engraved into the acrylic glass are some of the names that were attached to the #StayWoke. During the Black Lives Matter movement many names were recited as being murdered by the police in America. However, a great percentage of the names were never mentioned due to the countless times black men and women are murdered every single day due to police brutality. The hashtag was created to remind us that just because the media is not covering the names of black lives that were killed by the police, it does not mean that their names are any less important or that their lives were any less valid.
