'The Black Power Fist is a reminder that even today we need to raise our fists against oppression. The words within it are a reminder that Black Lives will matter forever and the words above are taken from Afrika Bambaataa's song "Peace, Unity, Love and Having Fun" with the last word changed to power. This is the truth of how we can create a fairer world and it is time for the power to shift, and for the voices of those oppressed to never be ignored again.' (Harkiran Kalsi)
