Black Lives Matter | Am I Next?
“Am I Next?” is an unfortunate powerful art story where we gathered our Black Deaf individuals in our community to share the heart of what we are feeling and experiencing. It has been an emotional roller coaster of turmoil for the entire nation of us Black people. There is so much pain, injustice in the system and exhaustion. Bringing this to light, we hope this will push the movement of change forward for absolute justice, action, unity, consciousness, and love in this country. At the end of all this, we want to dismantle systematic racism for good. We are counting on you to make that happen. Please free share and forward the video.
