Uprising by Lataya Johnson

Descending through an endless fall they keep reaching out for hope, resilience, for someone to listen, to keep fighting for a change, for someone not to give up on them. For someone to realize they’re humanity. Not knowing if it will ever end or if they will even win. They reach out for us, even with all the odds against them.

“Will you reach out for them?”

[Image description: The piece depicts a Black woman falling through the sky. The sky is a blue gradient with soft, fluffy clouds ranging from light pink to burnt orange. The woman’s body is loosely wrapped in flowing fabric that matches the tones of the clouds. Her arm reaches out forward and her braids float upwards as she falls. Her long, powerful legs are spread out with her left foot reaching into the foreground].
