George Floyd Hometown ‘Vote’ Mural Unveiled Days Before Birthday
A new fresco by George floyd just had a public screening just in time – days before his 47th birthday, and perhaps more importantly … three weeks before the election.
The mural – which was worked under the firm hand of a local artist Angel Hillz – was unveiled Monday in Houston … George’s hometown. It’s even more personal that, however … the artwork is displayed on a wall outside a convenience store that George frequented.
As you can see the end product is quite exquisite – it’s George painted in a multi-colored display, with 2 doves of him carrying signs that say “Be the Change” and “Go Vote”.
As we first told you … it fits in with his birthday wish expressed by family members, who are planning to hit the streets of Minneapolis and St. Paul’s on Wednesday – the day that he would have been 47 – and try to enroll as many people as possible and save them.
As for Monday’s ceremony, we are told that relatives close to George were present, as was the US MP. Sheila jackson lee … who made public remarks reflecting the message of the mural – namely, get out the vote and be the change.
There were a few other community members in the crowd as well, but it was relatively small … we’re told George’s family wanted to keep COVID friendly and not make him super excited. BTW, civil rights lawyer Ben crump – who represents the Floyds – called and also spoke.
Now we’ve seen our fair share of George Floyd’s art renderings now … but this one just might take the cake.
Our sincere thanks to
