Posted @withregram • @tlduryea In the middle of an an unbearable horror, Darnella Frazier had the presence of mind and strength not only to bear witness to the murder of George Floyd but record it so no one could deny what happened.

Violence has ripples, and those who are witness to violence are forever effected by it.  Her action turned us all into witnesses and helped many people see reality.

What she did was incredibly hard and then she had to relive the experience in court.  But it was important and brave and we all are in her a debt for it. It’s possible this teenager may have shifted the course of history.

Painting is 10” x 10”. Oil on panel. Available on website, link in bio.

Posted @withregram • @antiracismdaily After a tense month, the Derek Chauvin trial has finally come to an end. For the first time in Minnesota state history, a white police officer has been held accountable for killing a Black man. It shouldn’t have had to take a video recorded by a 17-year-old girl, a summer of national protests, and months of intense pressure by the family and organizers for this trial to occur. 

The trial included several pieces of misinformation, resulting from tactics often used to ensure police officers arent held accountable. Today, weve partnered with The George Floyd Family Foundation (@justiceforgeorgenyc) to highlight the fact v. fiction from the trial, and highlight their work to uplift and elevate Black men.
