"'Fight the Power' was born as a mural painted during the Black Lives Matter protests in DC in summer 2020. As a black woman and artist, this piece was my raw response to all the frustration and injustice we witnessed and endured, and lives as a message through history of how we feel. This piece was born to inspire and empower us all." –Trap Bob
