Oscars red carpet: Travon Free honors George Floyd, Tamir Rice and Kobe Bryant
During the 2021 Oscars red carpet, actor and writer Travon Free made a powerful statement with his outfit.
The 36-year-old turned heads in a black Dolce and Gabanna suit that bore the names of those killed in the police brutality – Tamir Rice, Eric Garner, Philando Castile and many more – on the lining at the interior. He paired it with black Nike Air sneakers that paid homage to George floyd and Breonna Taylor, among others.
His Two distant strangers Co-director Martin Desmond Roe posed alongside in a similar costume.
They also wore pins with the jersey numbers of late NBA legend Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna.
The duo won the Oscar for Best Live-Action Short for their film about racial justice. In his acceptance speech, Free was quoted as saying by ew.com, “Today the police will kill three people. And tomorrow the police will kill three people. And the next day, the police will kill three people because the average US police kill three people every day, which equates to about a thousand people a year. And these people are disproportionately black.
