In celebration of MLK day, I drew this location drawing of the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama in 1965. Martin Luther King Jr. was a hugely important figure in the fight for racial equity in the United States. While it is critical to remember his legacy, we also must remember that racism did not end with the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Black Americans still face extreme consequences of a culture that has been propped up on white supremacy. I hope that you can appreciate this art both as a celebration of the racial justice work that has been done so far, and as a contemplative call to action for the racial justice work that we are still in dire need of. While this digital download is free, I ask that you consider donating to one of the nonprofits listed below to continue the fight against racism. I have also included a list of some great resources to learn more about racial injustice in the United States.
