Custom painted basketball court, KCMO 2021

In 2013 Ryan Stokes was unlawfully killed by a Kansas City police officer in the Power and Light District. Eight years later his family still seeks restorative justice.
This basketball court memorial will not only serve as a place for recreation, but a symbol of love and justice being restored after death. When those visit this court the name Ryan Stokes will take on a new meaning, filled with hope and light.
