Angela Davis mural

Brighton, North Laine street art on Trafalgar Lane

The phenomenal woman that is Angela Davis is an American author, philosopher, professor, revolutionary, feminist, political activist and advocate for black rights, civil rights, women’s rights and prison reform. I was so struck by her poise and calm ferocity when watching the recent documentary 13th about the American prison system, and systemic racism in America that I felt compelled to paint her on the streets of Brighton. It was a great opportunity to chat to passers by about this inspiring icon and what she stands for. This mural can be found on Trafalgar lane alongside Mazcan’s tribute to Vera Lynn.

I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change, I am changing the things I cannot accept

Angela Davis.
