I Can’t Breathe
June 2020 acrylic, 19 x 14″
The white man fears to be unfeared,
To be bereft of power, best years past.
He therefore wears a fearful face
And oils his guns in anger, and stands fast.
The black man fears for his very life,
The welfare of his children, and his race.
He’s seen as dark, a shadow-man,
And so he also wears a fearful face.

Commissioned by Richard O’Connor of Ace & Son Moving Picture Co., a Brooklyn, New York animation studio, Maurice developed master illustrations for a short film for the American non-profit public radio initiative, StoryCorps.
“My Aunties” is written by Stefan Lynch and Beth Teper. Stefan Lynch was raised by gay parents in the early eighties. He was cared for and loved by a group of adults, largely gay men, who he called his â€œaunties.â€ Stefan remembers the succession of AIDS-related illnesses in his family, including the death of his father in â€˜91. Even in the face of terrible sickness and loss, his aunties showed him how to survive and care for one another.
Listen to Stefan and Bethâ€™s original StoryCorps interview.
The animation is available on YouTube.
