1001 Black Men #782

This evening, I’m thinking about Black men’s lives. Today I grieve the loss of Michael Brown and the failure of the grand jury to bring charges against Officer Wilson, and I reassert my commitment to documenting the lives of the Black men around me.

In a society whose officers of the law too often react to young Black men as though their very¬†existence is a crime, Black men’s simple, daily tasks are acts of resistance. When a Black man carries out the activities of his daily life with style, self-assurance, and beauty, his resistance become a work of art.
