The No More Blues series is a compilation of visual images of a 2013 protest that ignited as a direct response to the murder of Trayvon Martin and the subsequent failure of the American legal system to hold his murderer, George Zimmerman, accountable. The Blues is the birthchild and invention of black folks living in America and came about a few years after abolishing slavery. It is the song and traumatic melodic expression of a persecuted people. No More Blues attempts to capture individuals exhibiting a crisis of consciousness through the medium of visual expression wherein the unending mistreatment, subjugation, and oppression of black people in America would no longer be tolerated or denied.
The protest and series mark a vital contribution to Black lives' dialogue and their value in America and worldwide. More importantly, this series captures the zeal, tenacity, and fearlessness of young individuals conveying a message of urgent change and immediate action. Seven years after this exhibition, the American people find themselves back on the front lines of a social justice movement with the demand for eradication of a systematic virus that gives way to violence against black bodies with no accountability. At present, the justice movement is intertwined with an impending economic crisis and global pandemic, bringing clear awareness to the cultural inequities caused by racism.
