George Floyd’s murder rocked the nation. For Twin Cities artists, here on the ground—literally, the hallowed ground where Floyd called for his mama—the intersection of 38th and Chicago, (now known as 38th and Floyd)—in this place, in this space, in this city, in these Twin Cities and beyond, Black and IPOC artists from our community responded to the death of George Floyd and the murderous cop with his icy cold stare and his knee on Floyd’s neck, and to everything leading up to it, and to everything that came after, not only with grief and rage, but also with joy, color, dreams, breath and love. Holding the past, the present, and the future. Holding pain and holding promise. Holding space.
