“Ahmaud Arbery’s murderers were convicted for their hate crimes today. I have struggled to paint Ahmaud due to how chilling his murder case has been, but his life is worth more than how he has been treated. Ahmaud was running and minding his own business when three white men drove him down and shot him for running in their neighborhood while being black. His death is a tragedy. Ahmaud deserved better. Ahmaud’s family deserve better. #blacklivesmatter. #SayHisName.“
