‘ON THE GROUND’ SHOW, DEC. 11, 2014–AS DEMONSTRATIONS CONTINUE AROUND THE COUNTRY, MOTHERS OF SLAIN BLACK MEN AND BOYS TOOK THE CAPITAL BY STORM


DECEMBER 11, 2014
AS DEMONSTRATIONS CONTINUE AROUND THE COUNTRY—after grand juries failed to indict police officers in the death of Michael Brown in Missouri and Eric Garner in New York—mothers of slain Black men and boys took the capital by storm this week, the same week that details of CIA torture were made public in a long-awaited report. For activists on the ground, the convergence of these two issues point directly to the impunity of police and the military-industrial complex from the consequences of brutality and killing. This Saturday, December 13, a coalition of organizations and thousands of others are planning to gather here in DC for the National March Against Police Violence. Guests and Voices: Salim Adofo, Jeralyn Blueford, mother of Alan Blueford; Wanda Johnson, mother of Oscar Grant and Valerie Bell, mother of Sean Bell and Godwin Uyi Ojo. Headlines and more.
