Michael Brown exhibit opened in Chicago
(CHICAGO) – A new art exhibit about the Michael Brown police shooting in Ferguson is on display in Chicago.
The piece features a life-size portrayal of Michael Brown after he was killed last year in Ferguson.
It also includes a black statue of liberty, and a noose dangling from a neon sign.
The exhibit also features a plaque with the words “I Can’t Breathe”; referencing the Eric Garner police involved death in New York.
A Brown family member praises the exhibit.
The artist is a white woman from New Orleans.
She says it represents white privilege in America and how it negatively affects the black community.
The exhibit runs through August 10th.
