Seven Last Words: Joel Thompson's Seven Last Words of the Unarmed

Seven Last Words: Joel Thompson's Seven Last Words of the Unarmed takes the last words of unarmed Black Men (Kenneth Chamberlain, Trayvon Martin, Amadou Diallo, Michael Brown, Oscar Grant, John Crawford, Eric Garner and George Floyd) before they were killed.  According to Thompson, the composition was "an effort to humanize these men and to reckon with my identity as a black man in this country in relation to this specific scourge of police brutality". Join me in exploring this powerful work this week.
