Going from a newspaper, to an essay to a conversation to a memory. The hand written essay was used by my friend Mashaun Hendricks to lead a restorative justice training with police and the residents of North Lawndale after a Guardian article exposes Chicago’s police torture in a blacksite building across the street from where we worked together.
Teardrops are loss of those forgotten, remembering their story.
Each tear drop represents a lost loved one to the community.
