New Orleans Mayor Tweets ‘Breathtaking’ Giant Black Fist Afro Comb Art Display For Juneteenth | The Daily Wire

New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell pulled the drapes off an art display of an oversized black fist afro comb on Friday in celebration of Juneteenth — the holiday commemorating the ending of U.S. slavery. 

Cantrell, who tweeted a series of photos of the display, called the artwork “breathtaking.”

“This sculpture is very fitting for this time & place as we celebrate the freedoms that we have gained,” Cantrell said on Twitter. “We know that it doesn’t come without struggles, fights, and protests for 200+ years.”

Cantrell said during the art display unveiling that the goal for this sculpture and future murals is to recognize and pay homage to “afro-centric hairstyles tied to afro-centric roots” that “only black men and black women can rock.”
