Potent minimalist art sends a strong message about police and vigilante brutality in America

Journalist and artist Shirin Barghi has created a gripping, thought-provoking series of graphics that not only examines racial prejudice in today’s America, but also captures the sense of humanity that often gets lost in news coverage. Titled “Last Words,” the graphics illustrate the last recorded words by Brown and other young black people — Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant and others — who have been killed by police in recent years.

Can I just see you every morning when
I open my eyes
Can I just feel your heart beating beside me
Every night
Can we just feel this way together
Till the end of all time
Can I just spend my life with you

I will always be on the side of those who have nothing and who are not even allowed to enjoy the nothing they have in peace.

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious

Yesterday I got a call from my sister Cheeraz Gormon in St. Louis who was standing with poet Elizabeth Vega. They wanted me to know that a few women had created, on lawns, in the streets, healing stations, a place where the youth could come and scream and cry and be held and heard in love. Mighty work.Dream Hampton

this made me cry.

I’ve told the kids in the ghettos that violence won’t solve their problems, but then they ask me, and rightly so; ‘Why does the government use massive doses of violence to bring about the change it wants in the world?’ After this I knew that I could no longer speak against the violence in the ghettos without also speaking against the violence of my government.

What Now?

I have spent years teaching the differences between a perpetrator, bystander and upstander. I have questioned how our most profoundly disturbing world atrocities could be committed against massive groups of people - without massive human intervention. I’ve been baffled at why, how, everyday people…

National Moment of Silence 2014. | Facebook

Join us as we gather for a moment of silence for those who have been victims of police brutality throughout the U.S. There will be a group of people who’ll be making signs and posters to bring, but if you’d like to bring one of your own you’re more than welcome to. Please have the names and pictures of victims on them so that we can remember them and burn them in the conscious of America and the world.”
