Description: three panels- left to right: 1. Diamond surrounded by rainbow swirls and triangles. Fist that says “I can’t breathe.” names of people killed by police: George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Sandra Bland, Trayvon Martin. 2. Maya Angelou poem:
Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.
3. Mountains and sun, “We rise.”
Notes: part of the George Floyd protests
