“To blend reality and Afrofuturism, I used acrylic paint, collages, and 3D elements to display social injustices for students of color in the education system. The background features an educational war zone with people throwing up stereotypes to the student in the foreground. The student is shielding themself from the words with a metallic graduation cap that represents achievement and is breaking through their desk with West African symbols representing strength, knowledge, and wisdom.”
