George Floyd’s NFT Collection continues the fight for racial equality and justice.
The murder of George Floyd shook the world in 2020. His death at the hands of an officer on duty has highlighted the reality of racism in America and around the world. Massive protests took place around the world and it seemed like real change was about to happen.
After two years, progress is slowing and George Floyd’s brother Terrence continues to fight for police reform and justice. Now this new collection of NFTs will help keep the fight alive on behalf of George Floyd.
“[Police reform] changing, but it’s not changing fast,” Terrence said. “But it’s changing. Nothing in physical form will change until you change your mindset.”
The NFTs themselves are an extension of Confront Art’s larger project called SEEINJUSTICE. This series features sculptures of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, both killed by police in 2020. Chris Carnabuci’s art series also includes prominent civil rights activists such as the late and great Rep. John Lewis.
Funds raised from this NFT project by George Floyd’s brother will go to three fantastic charities focused on racial equality and justice. The Breonna Taylor Foundation, the John and Lillian Miles Lewis Foundation and We are Floyd Org.
