Friday NEWSRUSH Featuring Kanye West College Fund For George Floyd’s Daughter.
It’s CULTED with your Friday NEWSRUSH, dedicated to BLM support updates.
First up, according to TMZ, Kanye West has launched a college fund for George Floyd’s six-year-old daughter, Gianna. Kanye has also donated $2M to the families of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor. We love to see it and hope more celebrities follow suit.
In related news, 2 Minneapolis museums have cut all ties with the city’s police department. In a statement The Walker Arts Centre said they would no longer contract the MPD until it “implements meaningful change by demilitarising training programs, holding officers accountable for the use of excessive force, and treating communities of color with dignity and respect.” The Minneapolis Institute of Art followed The Walker Arts Centre.
Next, Lego is set to donate $4M to organisations which are dedicated to supporting black youth and teaching children about racial equality.
Next up, TIME magazine has unveiled its cover for June 15 which features a commissioned oil painting by Titus Kaphar. The piece is called ‘Analogous Colors’ and is dedicated to George Floyd and the ongoing fight against racism.
