No Justice, No Peace! No Racist Police! / Protest Warrior Cry Series 2020
12″ x 18″
“No Justice, No Peace! No Racist Police!” is a rallying cry that I have no shame shouting at protests because we as a nation have witnessed time after time the brutal murders of Black people in the United States at the hands of Racist police.
The origin of the first part of the protest cry "No Justice, No Peace" began as early as 1986, following the murder of Michael Griffith at the hands of mob of white youths. The variant "No Justice, No Peace, No Racist Police" has been recorded in print since at least 1995 following the murder of Joseph Gould, a homeless Black man, by an off-duty white Chicago police officer, who fled the scene of the crime while Gould lay dying.
