Potent minimalist art sends a strong message about police and vigilante brutality in America

Journalist and artist Shirin Barghi has created a gripping, thought-provoking series of graphics that not only examines racial prejudice in today’s America, but also captures the sense of humanity that often gets lost in news coverage. Titled “Last Words,” the graphics illustrate the last recorded words by Brown and other young black people — Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant and others — who have been killed by police in recent years.

Let us not forget their voices

The sun is perfect and you woke this morning. You have enough language in your mouth to be understood. You have a name, and someone wants to call it. Five fingers on your hand and someone wants to hold it. If we just start there, every beautiful thing that has and will ever exist is possible. If we start there, everything, for a moment, is right in the world.

Tonight in Ferguson, Mo. Even CNN is calling out police brutality.

We are watching history unfold. Do not stand down. Spread the word.

No justice, no peace.

III

I’m late to-day,
you were late yesterday,
but he didn’t say,
“I’m sorry,
I kept you waiting,”
(the rain beats in my eyes again)
I lifted my face,
surprised
to see no answer in his,
no kiss,
(love is a trap,
a snare)
a bird
lifted a passionless wing;
nothing,
nothing was ever so fair
as the wonder that clutched at me there,
unaware,
under the rain;
my brain sang
a rhythm I never dreamt to sing,
“I will be gay and laugh and sing,
he is going away,”
I sang and sang under my breath,
“can death offer a sweeter thing?
I am free;
O pavements spread me your gold,
I am young,
I am young,
I am young
whom Love
had made old.”
