Edreys Wajed’s Love Black is a timely contribution to our ongoing national conversation around racial justice. With Wajed’s simple but passionate words—produced in collaboration with the local mural artist and sign painter James “YAMES” Moffitt—he challenges the disconnect between the assumption that children, including Black children, are essentially innocent while as adults they can be racially stigmatized as dangerous and undeserving of love and equal treatment—told that their lives do not matter, often with deadly results. With this gentle challenge, Love Black stands as an important reminder that loving and respecting the rights of individuals must transcend age and race.
