July 12, 2021 to July 11, 2022
MacDonald Park, Queens
The piece is a way to honor those who have died during COVID. It’s also a way to celebrate the community moving forward to make a better world for our youth by taking what we as a community have learned and working together for change.
The Afro pick originated over 5500 years ago in Africa as a way to honor, celebrate, educate, and empower.
