the reflective black body

a mural for the City of Newark and Mayor Ras Baraka’s Citywide Mural Project at 258 Jelliff ave.

"I tell you now that the question of how one should live within a black body, within a country lost in the Dream, is the question of my life, and the pursuit of this question, I have found, ultimately answers itself." writes Ta-Nehisi Coates to his son Samori in "Between the World and Me"- this mural was inspired by his recent memoir and message.
