An exhibit that honors Black lives lost to racial injustice is on display for two weeks in Houston’s Emancipation Park.

The Say Their Names Memorial, brought to Houston by rapper and activist Trae Tha Truth, features pillars with black-and-white photos of victims of police brutality and racial injustice. Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Tamir Rice and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. are among more than 200 people honored in the memorial. Colorful flowers adorn each pillar.

The exhibit will remain on display in Emancipation Park for the public from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily through Oct. 13.
