Steve Martinez's mural of a black fist punching upright into the air holding a surgical mask. Behind, the word "I Can't Breathe" are George Floyd's last words as he died at the hands of the police.

“There are two pandemics we are simultaneously fighting at this very moment. One is a disease that started about 7 months ago and the other is a disease that has plagued this country for over 400 years.” – Steve Martinez

George Floyd’s plea, “I Can’t Breathe” has become synonymous with historical, systematic oppression that has plagued this country since its foundation. Thank you to Steve Martinez for this powerful statement of solidarity and need for change. Enough is enough. Read the Long Beach Museum of Art Foundation’s Equity and Inclusion Statement here.
