The artist says.
This portrait is based on a powerful photo by Future Hackney taken during the Black Lives Matter protests in London.
This mural will definitely stay for a while - a reminder that inequalities and injustices happen every day, tearing countless lives and families apart, and that the fight against racism and discriminations can never stop.

1900 was when Postman's Park became the location for George Frederic Watts's Memorial to Heroic Self-Sacrifice, a memorial to ordinary people who died while saving the lives of others and who might otherwise be forgotten.
This takes the form of a loggia and long wall housing ceramic memorial tablets.
The Heroic act by Mills,Rutter,Durrant & Jones took place 125 years ago today & is a good reminder of all the people who are making sacrifices at present.
