The Price of Blackness

“We all know, that what happened to Michael Brown was not a unique incident but part of a larger phenomenon.” “To be Black in this country means, you have to pay a tax on our life. Some of us pay in dignity, some of us pay in blood.”

The survival stories that are shared in this short film connect with experiences that many Black men can resonate with while trying to navigate a society that criminalizes them because of their race.

I'm a Social Justice Educator and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities. "Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian" is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.
