A documentary short covering how the Atlanta Community has responded to the brutal murder of Mike Brown.
Upon learning that elements of this murder were not getting covered properly, it dawned on us to ensure our story was properly documented. As this piece was being put together and the news footage was being compiled, ironically not only was video footage from Ferguson hard to come by, but I didn’t find much online from other cities either. In fact the search engines don’t readily turn up many results outside of Missouri. It’s not to say footage doesn’t exist, but to say that if we are actively searching and it’s hard to find, it’s unlikely that someone who is less aware of the events would find anything.
There needs to be as much VIDEO footage out there as possible for all cities doing anything around these events. Moving images controlled by the people as opposed to mass media provide a broader opportunity to draw real conclusions. I encourage every and anyone who is able to film and upload what is happening in your city. Everyone, specifically the residents of Ferguson need to see the support we all have for them and a large amount of that support is not letting the momentum subside as the news cycle moves on to another story.
Out of sight, out of mind is the age old saying, so remain vigilant and visible as we continue fighting to attain justice for all who have become victims of police brutality and murder.
Rest In Peace Michael Brown.
