“The first study, “Police Killings and their Spillover Effects on the Mental Health of Black Americans,” published June 21st in the medical journal The Lancet, finds that black people report having poor mental health days in the months after an unarmed African American has been killed by police. The “spillover effect” denotes the finding that such police killings tend to mentally affect African Americans in general, regardless of whether they have a personal connection to the person killed or not. “

This invitational exhibition features the work of established Black artists; making visual statements about how police violence and the potential for police violence has psychologically affected them and their communities.
