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.

"It took many years of vomiting up all the filth I’d been taught about myself, and half-believed, before I was able to walk on this earth as though I had a right to be here."

"Malcolm [X] was one of the most beautiful and one of the most gentle men I met in all my life. He asked the boy a question which I now present to you: If you are a citizen, why do you have to fight for your civil rights? If you’re fighting for your civil rights, that means you’re not a citizen. In fact, the legality of this country has never had anything to do with its former slaves. We are still governed by the slave codes."
James Baldwin on Malcolm X, 1979. (via disciplesofmalcolm)
James Baldwin on "Looters."

My mentees are so inspirational ! They keep reminding me why I work hard . They are fierce, intelligent, kind, hard working! I have to say that few things will make me cry in front of other people- when I got this card I could not hold back the tears . I been working with this mentee since she was in high school, she is now getting ready to go to college . She has overcome so much to get to where she is. There is something truly beautiful about a resilient spirit like her . In the midst of black and brown folks facing extreme violence I am reminded by her that we must continue to do work that matters to our community. She also reminds how crucial it is for me to take care of myself. While  we do not “fit” into certain spaces we most craft our own spaces.
