In an interview with Billboard last month,Country Legend,Dolly Parton made a statement (which is pretty awesome) following the death of George Floyd.
“I understand people having to make themselves known and felt and seen, and of course Black lives matter. Do we think our little white a**es are the only ones that matter? No!”
The Nashville-based muralist and artist,Kim Radford made an illustration of the iconic singer with the statement written on it. Speaking of her work,she said;
“I looked at her quote in particular and it was so sassy and a sensitive comment about something’s [sic] that got a lot of friction in the air right now,”Radford told a local reporter.
“And she just treated it just like Dolly does: lovingly. And it was just perfect.” Radford then incorporated the quote into her project.“It’s a representation of an icon that Americans and really people across the globe are really proud to know and love her music.”
What a great way to pass a message and honor Dolly.
