It is the one year anniversary of the killing of Michael Brown, age 18, in Ferguson, MO.
I made this shortly after I learned about the incident and posted about it here.
And there have been so many horrific deaths since.
It feels never ending.
I’m working on a new post for soon, but just wanted to say:
Thank you and Welcome
to all the new followers of recent weeks
and days as well as everyone who’s been here
a long time.
I hope you stay warm enough or cool enough.
Wherever you may be on the planet,
I’m so glad you’re here, too.
I made this drawing after the horrifying and maddening news of Michael Brown’s death by police shooting in Ferguson, MO.
Here are a few articles and videos that have caught my eye since:
From Melissa Harris Perry at MSNBC: “No rights which the white man was bound to respect.”
On the connection to climate movement by Deirdre Smith via Common Dreams.org
From Last Week Tonight’s John Oliver
And some satire, too -How we’d cover Ferguson if it happened in another country- by Max Fisher at Vox
Love and peace,
