Lake Street Speaks A Collection of Poetry and Art
Lake Street Speaks by by Susan B. Shields (Author), Rashaunea Ambers Winston (Author)
A Collection of Poetry and Art for Social Justice.
Lake Street Speaks is a photographic collection of the street art that emerged in Minneapolis, Minnesota following the murder of George Floyd. Set with the verse of Minneapolis poet Rashaunea Ambers Winston, this 78-page soft-covered book memorializes the community's reaction to the unjust police murder of a black man that inspired Minneapolis and the world to raise its voice for social justice.
This book focuses on the street art and poetry inspired by May 25, 2020. The street murals along Lake Street in Minneapolis, Minnesota and surrounding neighborhoods speak to a movement raising the conversation of racial inequity. Combined, these graffiti art masterpieces created a museum of the street, and an inspiration to those who walked or drove through the neighborhoods. It is hoped that this book will promote greater tolerance and respect.
