Say their names

After the looting that occurred in Soho two weeks ago, many of the storefronts are boarded up. The plywood now serves as canvas for artists, who have been creating portraits of victims of police brutality.

The artwork is powerful and moving, and I recommend taking a walk around the area and checking it out.
