Remembering Oscar Grant

Exactly two years ago, a Bay Area Rapid Transit police officer shot Oscar Grant in the back and killed him. I was in San Francisco for part of the initial riots after his death, and now I’m here again on the anniversary of his death.

Listen to this radio piece I helped produce discussing how this relates to a larger context of police violence. Above, a photo from a Greensboro rally in Grant’s memory.
