“I really, really would like for them to take that away,” Brown said. “I think it’s disturbing, disgusting…that picture is still in my head.”

The artist behind the exhibit, Ti-Rock Moore, is a white woman from New Orleans.
She said that the exhibit was meant to show the damage that white privilege in America can do, and to bring healing in the Black community.
The exhibit included a life-sized portrayal of the scene of Brown’s fatal shooting, along with a Black Statue of Liberty and a noose dangling from a neon sign.
“The feelings — I try to ball [them] up and put [them] to the side. I still have good days and bad days but that just brought the whole thing back to me,” said Brown Sr. about the exhibit.
The recreation of Brown’s death is a mannequin dressed in Brown’s clothing lying face down in what’s supposed to be the streets of Ferguson, MO, where he was shot in August of 2014.
