Check out a friend of mine, Luis Antonio Thompson, and his latest video titled “I AM: A Young Black Man.”
As part of The L.A. Thompson Project, the video is in response to the now-national dialogue about young black men in the wake of the Trayvon Martin tragedy.
Simply put, the video urges people NOT to forget that black men exist despite society’s view of them. It’s a short and powerful piece that connected with me and is so appropriate these days. I am, like millions of others, one of the black men they talk about.
It’s also a chilling reminder that it’s been over six weeks since Trayvon Martin was hunted and murdered by George Zimmerman in Florida without an arrest yet. Do not forget.
