The artwork captures a powerful moment of homage as living and ancestral figures, including Assata Shakur, Stokely Carmichael, Patrice Lumumba, Francis Cress Welsing, Marielle Franco and Ida B. Wells, are bestowed with flowers. Assata Shakur, a prominent activist, fought against systemic oppression, exemplifying resilience and resistance. Stokely Carmichael, an advocate for Black empowerment, popularized the phrase "Black Power" and inspired movements for racial justice. Patrice Lumumba, the first Prime Minister of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, led his country towards independence, challenging colonial dominance. Francis Cress Welsing, a pioneering psychiatrist, explored the dynamics of racism and advocated for African American empowerment. Marielle Franco, a courageous Brazilian politician and human rights activist, dedicated her life to fighting against racism, police violence, and social inequality. Ida B. Wells, a fearless journalist and anti-lynching crusader, courageously exposed racial injustices. Together, they symbolize the enduring spirit of liberation and the ongoing struggle for equality and justice.
