a prayer is a plea. It is an act of mourning, an expression of rage, a vulnerable appeal for change. a prayer is an experimental animation that explores how white supremacy, state violence, and civil unrest seep into our shared consciousness and our homes. The cyclical nature of police brutality and the murders of Black and Brown folks have created a collective déjà vu in our communities. We are too accustomed to this pattern. a prayer is a plea. A plea to face our nation’s deep history of white supremacy, dismantle law enforcement, and put an end to the prison industrial complex. a prayer is a plea for liberation. BLACK LIVES MATTER.
