10621-BOOM

Updated: Apr 1, 2021


BOOM BOOM was the sound of my heart filled with exhilaration after hearing the victory of Rev. Raphael Warnock, a Baptist preacher born and raised in Georgia, to become his state’s first Black senator


BOOM BOOM was the pounding sound of the splitting headache I felt after hearing no prosecution for the shooting of Jacob Blake


BOOM BOOM was the silent sound of my eyes reading left to right to see that we had yet another victory in Georgia with Ossoff


BOOM BOOM was the sound of shots fired as I turned on a live video of shooting at the Capitol during its siege


BOOM BOOM is my mind being blown as I think about how different this viewing or sight would be if these men and women were Black at the Capitol


BOOM x 4 is the collective and comforting sound of our heartbeats as we stand to embrace one another after watching in shock and disbelief, as our nation be turned upside down over fear


BOOM BOOM is the sound of exhaustion as each eyelid closes


BOOM!
