Description: A woman's face covered in the names of victims of racist vigilantes and a corrupt police culture that criminalizes black skin.
I created this in 2016, shortly after Terence Crutcher was murdered by a police officer in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I made a list of names, and I was not able to fit them all. As I was working, I remember thinking that the list was already outdated. New names were being added constantly, names I would never know because they'd never make it to the news.
