On the famed Hollywood Walk of Fame, a group of bold activists added the names of several Black victims of police brutality and violence to unused stars at the popular tourist destination. Michael Brown Jr., Tamir Rice, Eric Garner and little Aiyana Stanley-Jones were among the names emblazoned onto the sidewalk, VIBE reports.
The group, This Is Indecline, which apparently engages in activism art, posted videos of them repurposing the empty stars on the walk via their Instagram account and on their website.
In an action This Is Decline dubbed “#BlackLivesMatter: Hollywood,” the week-old video shows members of the group placing name placards on the stars using welding material to hold things into place as a voice-over of a man shouting down police brutality plays in the background.
Other names that appear in the clip include Oscar Grant and Freddie Gray among a handful of others. This Is Decline has engaged in similar art protests, including projects aimed at Donald Trump and police.
