I was deeply saddened to hear of yet another murder of an innocent un-armed black man by police in America. George Floyd, killed only weeks after Ahmaud Arbery was murdered by ex-police officers because he happened to be jogging in a white neighbourhood. It seems like it’s occurring more and more often and yet I think the truth is that the prevalence of video technology is just slowly shining a light on a problem that has always been faced by black people in America and the UK.
It’s easy to feel powerless in these matters so I decided to make a piece of jewellery, with all the proceeds going to Black Lives Matter. I’ll also personally top up the amount to £100.
The necklace is available in your choice of chain or black cord.
