WSV’s Aundrea Sayrie writes, “One gets weary. Not including last week, Newsweek reports that an additional 181 Black people have been murdered at the hands of police since George Floyd, and it hasn’t been a year. When Derek Chauvin’s verdict was read last week, I did not rejoice. I did not feel excitement of any sort. I was in total shock witnessing the anomaly of accountability of a police officer. This never happens.”

On this episode we acknowledge, analyze, carry, and lift the heaviness of the summation of tragedies we’ve witnessed in 2020 (Ahmaud Arbrey, Breonna Taylor, Dreajon Reed, George Floyd). This episode is for those who are feeling all of the feels, some of the feels, none of the feels, and those who don’t want to feel at all. Join A+scribe and Elijaih Tiggs.

“When someone is grieving one of the best things to do is just be present. Your presence was felt Three Rivers. I balled afterward and finally regained a sense of peace knowing that so many others care, are willing to have the hard conversations, and take a stand against injustice. After all of the mourning, there was joy.”
