As a Black male in America I know that I am an American Endangered Species of sorts. George Floyd was one of many! Imagine all the people who were killed off camera! We have to address the problems we’ve made in our history, culture and institutions. We need to see the unlined connections in our American culture and history and how race was used as a tool to oppress, separate and prevent our unions. Surely, if you do not recognize that the majority of our foundational structures were built by people of color, then we’ve missed a huge piece of history in our country’s founding. If we missed the story of John Punch. If we missed that Crispus Attucks’s death was a turning point in our American history. Then, we truly miss the historical importance of the killing of George Floyd and so many others. Ending racism through public education should be a top priority so we can solve even bigger problems. If you can imagine one bigger. We have to work together! We have one spaceship called earth. We can change things, but we have to do it together! - Marcus Brown

Check out my friend Andre M. Perry's brilliant book!
“In this groundbreaking and important volume, Andre Perry brilliantly addresses the importance of fixing the racist governmental policies that have ‘created housing, education, and wealth disparities,’ especially in Black communities. Not only a rigorous analysis of the dynamics of devaluation, Perry has written a powerful personal narrative that will captivate his readers.”
—Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Alphonse Fletcher University Professor, Harvard University
Art is spiritual, it's science, it's history, it's healing, it's love, it's everything. Art is a prayer in making. - Marcus Brown
Sadly, I keep adding more audio clips to “Touch the black”.This piece tiggers audio clips from police killings of black people. I created this intentionally for those who do not understand the inequities of Black people in the United States / the planet. If you're hip to the multiverse theory. Understand that Black people exist in the same universe with everyone. It’s just that in our multiverse everyday we think about how easy it is to be removed from it. - Marcus Brown #BlackLivesMatter
