    This #MothersDay, @dohnn83 + @BlkLivesMatter create for a seven-piece art series for Trayvon Martin’s mother, @SybrinaFulton. Letter: T “Inspired by the #DearTrayvonsMom hashtag, I want Sybrina to see all the support she's received via social media. The ‘T’ consists of all the positive messages from various supporters. #DearTrayvonsMom is highlighted in BLM yellow. Supporting the 'T' are silhouettes of two black boys; Sybrina consistently says she still has two sons, "one in heaven and one on earth". I decided to back the silos with stars and stripes; to remind her and others to keep faith in our country, no matter the circumstances.” - Dohnn Ball, www.dohnnashton.com

    This #MothersDay, @tyesani + @BlkLivesMatter create for a seven-piece art series for Trayvon Martin’s mother, @SybrinaFulton. Letter: R “I was inspired by the movement that galvanized around Trayvon's untimely death and wanted to portray Trayvon and his mother Sybrina as the leaders of that movement, with the "R" in Trayvon's name also representing the Resistance -- to an unjust justice system and to state-sponsored violence.” - Hasani Tyus, www.hasanityus.com #DearTrayvonsMom

    This #MothersDay, @artist_life + @BlkLivesMatter create for a seven-piece art series for Trayvon Martin’s mother, @SybrinaFulton. Letter: Y Title: "A Flower For Mama" “I wanted to capture the innocence in Trayvon's eyes through this piece. The letter ‘Y’ doubles as the magnolia branch. I often use my art as a vehicle to say what needs to be said when words aren’t enough, because art simply has a way of delivering a message the way nothing else can.” - Christina O., www.ChristinaO.weebly.com #DearTrayvonsMom

    This #MothersDay, @ArtworkByKaleo + @BlkLivesMatter create for a seven-piece art series for Trayvon Martin’s mother, @SybrinaFulton. Letter: V “Here is the original mixed media piece that I created for Sybrina and The Movement, called ‘Black Mama’. I was also inspired to write a poem called ‘Black Mama’ as well, which I integrated into the piece. The hands clasped can be interpreted as Sybrina holding Trayvon’s hand and that he is always here with his mother in spirit… interpretations that I hope Sybrina finds peace and solace through. ‘Black Mama’ was created to inspire Black Mamas and daughters, sisters and cousins, to join hands, stand tall, and walk together powerfully into the future. I applaud you for the work that you put in to make a difference for all of us and our babies…and I look forward to seeing how your inspiration makes a true, lasting difference in all of our lives.” - Kaleo, www.ArtworkbyKaleo.com #DearTrayvonsMom

    This #MothersDay, @jalanimorgan + @BlkLivesMatter create for a seven-piece art series for Trayvon Martin’s mother, @SybrinaFulton. Letter: O “I work in photography and this work reflects my photographic process combined with the representation of the letter 'O' -- the sixth letter of the name of brother Trayvon. Thinking about making an honouring for Sybrina Fulton, I think about the power of our community to mobilize behind the life of Trayvon and the future lives that will know Trayvon's name. The photo in this piece is from the first protest here in Toronto, Canada in 2014, in response to Trayvon's and Eric Garners murders. I wanted this image to exude our love and solidarity here in Toronto for your son Sybrina. Happy Mother’s Day.” - Jalani Morgan #DearTrayvonsMom

    There's no reason for the establishment to fear me. But it has every right to fear the people collectively -- I am one with the people.
