LOS ANGELES, CA – Cardi B and Anderson .Paak are among the names of people who’ve contributed to an art exhibit and upcoming benefit auction to help the families of Black women killed by the police.

The Los Angeles-based exhibit, titled “Show Me the Signs,” features over 100 different protest signs contributed by the likes of both Cardi and Paak as well as Billie Eilish, Bruno Mars, Jim Carrey and more.

The exhibit is on display at Blum & Poe gallery through November 14, but the live auction starts on November 10. All proceeds will go to the African American Policy Forum (AAPF) #SayHerName Mothers Network, which “works with the mothers and families of Black women, girls and femmes killed by police to elevate their stories and fight for justice.”


Paak shared his contribution in a post on Instagram, which included a letter to the future.


“Dear future, I’m writing to you from the year 2020,” it reads. “I hope you’re doing better than we are, and in your world the words ‘Black Lives Matter’ is no longer controversial.”

Because of COVID, the benefit auction will be hosted online at Artfizz. More info is available at their website.
