BLACK LIVES MATTER: Become an Ally

If you benefit from a system of oppression that says white is good and black is bad, if you face less discrimination because the color of your skin offers you immediate protection, if you don’t have to warn your children about the dangers of having their skin-tone in public YOU HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY to stand beside people of color and demand change in the system that keeps them in poverty, subjugation, and extreme risk of violence from the criminal justice system. 

YOU DON’T HAVE TO ENDORSE RACIST IDEAS TO BENEFIT FROM WHITE SUPREMACY.

Kimberly Jones, author of "I'm Not Dying with You Tonight"

Description: On Saturday May 30th filmmaker and photographer David Jones of David Jones Media felt compelled to go out and serve the community in some way. He decided to use his art to try and explain the events that were currently impacting our lives.
