...And Then You Get Shot
...And Then You Get Shot is a text series highlighting the scenarios in which Black men, women, and children were killed by police and citizens citing "Stand Your Ground" and "Castle Doctrine" laws as self-defense.
There is a pervasive and troubling need to blame the victim in cases of extrajudicial killings, state violence, and police brutality and I created this series to highlight the absurdity and tragedy of the circumstances that have led to hundreds of deaths and assaults on Black bodies.
A continuation of Collective Memory.
