Ferguson

Going thru my sketchbooks and came across a series I did in August of 2014 after the murder of Mike Brown.













Hedy was 90 when she was arrested. She survived the holocaust only to be arrested in Ferguson for the crime of peaceful protest against the extra judicial slaughter of citizens


Ferguson protests were nationwide and in Oakland protesters brought mirrors.
“I was holding up the mirror because I wanted the police to just look at themselves. Especially if they were about to take some kind of action just so they had to acknowledge what they were doing,” protester Nichola Torbett told KPIX 5.
Demarco Robinson, also a protester, said, “We want that person to look at themselves so that they can realize they’re not a badge. They don’t have to follow the system that they don’t agree with.”
