Show me what democracy looks like

IMG_5053.JPGAs I get ready to get a whopping 2 hours of sleep, I realized I lost a few followers on social media this weekend. Guess I was blasting too much #FERGUSONOCTOBER on their timeline.

Oh well.

This is something that affects us all.
It’s time more people get uncomfortable; then maybe we can make room for change.

Saturday started with a march of almost 3k through our downtown. It ended at a historic site, the old courthouse. Just google Dred and Harriet Scott.

Powerful message, huh

I was interviewed on Saturday by a news channel 4 reporter.

Then that night we marched from Canfield, the location where Mike Brown was shot on August 9 to the Ferguson Police Station. Hundreds joined his family for this peaceful protest.

Tonight I marched with a large group from the place where Vonderrit Myers was shot last week toward the campus of St. Louis University. His family, Hedy Epstein, Dr. Cornell West, and many others worthy of admiration were amongst the crowd. At a mass meeting earlier today Dr. West said “I didn’t come to talk, I came to go to jail.” Thankfully the latter didn’t occur but he kept his word and stood by us. This has been one beautiful weekend and I’m rejuvenated in the fight to keep it going. #day66

This lady and her crew made us signs on Saturday and gave us tees on Sunday! Follow their segment of the movement at We Will Not Be Silent

With the guys from Channel One after being interviewed regarding change I’ve noticed over the years in my city (or should I say the lack there of).

I have so much more I could and want to share but I really should close my eyes. Check my Twitter or Instagram for more.
