Artists Against Police Violence is proud to present our first exhibit in collaboration with EMW Bookstore. In October of 2014, we launched a national call for submissions calling all artists to rise up against anti-Black police violence as an urgent response to the numerous protests erupting in Ferguson and across America.

The pieces gathered from this call became – a diverse online resource featuring paintings, posters, zines, and various print and moving media collected to be used on the streets, the internet and beyond. Here is a collection of work that remembers, mourns, and celebrates Black people who were killed by police, and honors the trauma and resistance that follow. By collecting and disseminating these images, we hope to urge forward and continue community resistance against anti-Blackness, and begin the long work of imagining a world without it.
