NO JU$TICE / JUST US

This February in honour of Black History Month I have created a 1/1 parcel to bring light to the injustice faced African Americans dating back to the 1920’s.

The front of the jacket is decorated with a patch which is shown as a “Justice” scale.The back of the jacket simply reads “NO JUSTICE”. This play on the movie Title “Poetic Justice” which stars Janet Jackson & Tupac Shakur. The film was released a year following the infamous 1992 LA Riots.The inner lining and fabric of this piece is decorated with the names of several individuals who have been killed unjustly by law enforcement and by acts of hatred.
