Little Black Boy (4:56)
Directed by Steve Rosenthal
"'Little Black Boy' was originally written out of response to the death of Mike Brown. The poem speaks to the frustration, fear, and pain I felt when I heard about the murder of Mike Brown and thought, 'God, please tell me this kid did something wrong . . . something that justifies his death.' I wanted to turn 'Little Black Boy' into a call for change, and a history lesson full of truth, rhythm, and hope." -Jillian Hanesworth
2019 Best Micro-Narrative
