Even a fews days after watching Whose Streets? (http://www.whosestreetsfilm.com/), I am still struggling to articulate how unsettled I am by the brutality peaceful protesters faced during the Ferguson uprising, especially with the recent events that occurred in Charlottesville, Virginia. The documentary is emotionally charged and is an important story to watch and listen. I cannot begin to comprehend the emotions that coursed through the Ferguson protestors as their cries were met with tanks and military grade weapons. I was, and still am, overwhelmed by their love for their community, which fueled their courage to fight for justice. Their action is helpful a reminder that progressive and positive change happens with us.
I urge you to watch it. Find out when and where you can watch it here: http://www.whosestreetsfilm.com/showtimes/
