Korryn Gaines was a 23-year-old woman killed by the Baltimore County Police on August 1, 2016. According to the Baltimore County Police Department, officers sought to serve Gaines a warrant in relation to an earlier traffic violation. Upon entering her apartment, an hours-long standoff ensued. At least one of the officers shot Gaines, killing her and wounding Gaines’ five-year-old son. Portions of the standoff were filmed by Gaines and posted to social-media networking sites; however, upon police request, Facebook deactivated Gaines’ Facebook and Instagram accounts (which we later restored after her death).
This piece was created to honour her as a Black woman, as a mother, and as a human being. It stands in solidarity, as she did, with the #BlackLivesMatter and Black Liberation movements.Buy Now
