Is there such a thing as “Black Innocence”? [VIDEO]

Jonathan Ferrell, was shot and killed by a Charlotte police officer while  running to the officers for help, after a serious car accident. He was unarmed.

I originally wrote this poem, as an intro to a photojournalism project called “Black Innocence”. After hearing about the death of former FAMU football player Jonathan Ferrell, who was killed by a Charlotte police officer, even though he was unarmed and running to the officers for help, I decided to record it and put it out.

Last week, a 8 year old Black boy, was shot in the face while playing tag. A week before that, a 16 year old unarmed teenager, was shot by police in Georgia while surrendering, after he skipped school. Is there such a thing as “Black Innocence” in this society? Take a listen to the above video and you be the judge.
