Brianna Nobel of Martinez rode a horse in a June 1, 2020 Oakland protest for George Floyd and other victims of police violence and white supremacy. The mural depicts a fiery revolutionary scene with Brianna Noble on horseback emerging from the uprising as the late Nipsey Hussle (Ermias Asghedom) looks on. On June 8, the Compton Cowboys held a BlackLivesMatter rally in Los Angeles that gathered a hundred Black protestors on horseback. Noble reported of her action: “When you’re black it doesn’t matter how loud you scream or how deep your words are, nobody would listen,” she continued. “So to now have found this amazing pedestal – my horse Dapper Dan to sit upon – and not have to say a word is amazing.”

The mural, on the side of Luka's Taproom, was painted by Chris Granillo, Pancho Pescador, Project Pat, Reon Jarreau, Christian Munoz and Chicano Eyes.
