My friends at Calimucho @calimucho_sanpedro now have this tee up on their site (link = bio). I used Gil Scott-Heron, not just because he was a great poet, musician, and vocalist, but for his insight and bravery in expressing the realities of being black in America. No Knock (1972) bowled me over – I thought of Breona Taylor’s murder, and the notorious “no-knock warrant” that led to it. Gil told it like it was in the early ‘70s and throughout his career. 100% of my proceeds from this tee goes to the Black Artist Fund @blackartistfund which gives grants to black artists and black art collectives/organizations to combat systemic inequity in the art world. blackartistfund justiceforbreonnataylor gilscottheron noknock blm
