Telford Mothers tribute to George Floyd
In Hollinswood, a mural has appeared as a tribute to George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement.
Margo Rose Benson, the artist behind the mural told Telford Live "I think as his murder has spread world wide, it is only fair that his voice is heard the same. I feel it is important that Telford supports his death in a peaceful manner and I am backing that 100%".
This is the first time that Margo has done anything like this; "My passion for this subject is deep in my heart. I have Chinese brothers and sisters and to see and hear the racism that they had to endure when we were children was heartbreaking.
"So to me, this is a subject that hits home and not enough people stand up for what is right when it comes to racism. I pride myself to care for people of all culture, religion etc and I pass this on to my children. My children have had to witness their black friends being bullied also and it needs to stop."
The chalk tribute took three hours to complete and Margo said that the neighbours are proud to have this in the street.
