The day after…..

What happens in our communities the day after the funeral, the day after the shooting, the day after the looting, the day after someone’s son or daughter has been shot dead by a police officer or just some random white guy? What happens when the news trucks and reporters move on to the next story? What happens after the less than Grand Jury refuses to indict an officer who killed another unarmed Black person? What happens after police in riot gear patrol our streets looking more like an invading army than those charged to protect and serve? What happens after the preachers have preached and the prayer warriors have prayed? What happens after the city fathers say EVERYTHING or say NOTHING at all? What happens in our communities the day after we face yet another astounding let down from the “just-us” system? How do we as Black people cope? What are some of the things that we have tried in the past, some of which worked and many of which did not. What are the things that we have yet to be courageous enough to attempt? The goal of this blog is to raise these issues and more as together we search for answers to what we as a community do BEYOND THE MARCH!
