The Mourning After

about

In protest of the unjust grand jury verdict of the Michael Brown/Darren Wilson "case", and this is in protest of police brutality and racism, in light of the many men and women, especially of African descent, who were unarmed, racially-profiled, and murdered by law enforcement.

This injustice must come to an end! I called it "The MOURNING After" as a double-meaning: I created this the morning after the verdict and as a call to action after mourning the loss of our fallen brothers and sisters (of all colors and nationalities) whose lives were taken by corrupt, violent and, many times, racist police.


Made especially at 4.5 minutes long in the memory of Michael Brown, Jr. of Ferguson, MO.
