Black Lives Matter illustrations feature in today's Dezeen Weekly newsletter

The latest edition of our Dezeen Weekly newsletter includes illustrations by graphic designers in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

People around the world are protesting following the death of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and other black men and women who have died at the hands of police officers in the US.

To show their support for the marches and condemnation for the killings, illustrators and artists have created visual reminders of the Black Lives Matter movement and shared links to resources which people can use to help others and better educate themselves.

We rounded-up 17 images and artists for readers to follow, including British data journalist and writer Mona Chalabi who has created a series of illustrations outlining the statistics of POC killed by police officers in the US.

Black Latin American artist and author Reyna Noriega who used her art to show two different sides of the same scene in her duo of illustrations is also featured.
