“The theme of the overall mural is African American history,” Holbrook said.
“Unfortunately, police brutality and racism has been part of African American history,” said Holbrook.
“I’m painting George Floyd, there’s going to be Breonna Taylor, also Ahmaud Arbery. Then we’re going to have some kids come this summer and fill some of the images in and write some messages,” Holbrook went on to say.MORE NEWS: Majority Of COVID-19 Patients Hospitalized Are Unvaccinated, AHN Doctor Says
