For the July issue, art director Blake Tannery called on four Atlanta artists to contribute pieces that illustrate their feelings with the United States at a crossroads in race relations. Since the killings of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, and Rayshard Brooks — and countless other African Americans before them — the status quo is no longer acceptable. Every- thing must change — a “revolution of values,” as the Reverend Dr. Bernice King states, is in order, for Black lives to matter. The old ways of thinking are outdated. Systemic racism in our society must end.
