The story of “Us”... #kingspen
This piece starts in Africa prior to the slave trade and takes us through the history of the Motherland being pillaged for its mineral wealth of diamonds, oil and gold. It goes on to the slave trade and the middle passage before delving into 400 years of slavery. In the middle of the piece I display the process of the civil rights movement and the heart of the piece shows four dots signifying the four girls that were murdered in Birmingham during the height of the Civil Rights movement. Moving on it shows how divided this country was while we tried to gain equal rights and it shows how Africans in America fought the system and got brutalized by the police while the police was allies for whites. Eventually love conquers all and we move on to a point where there is more inclusion and integration and all the people worked together to fight the injustices of the establishment. The establishment is represented by the orange on the left and the green and blue surrounding the orange represent the National guard and police whom protect the ideology of the monarchy.
