A MOTHER’S CRY. Let’s have a conversation about Gun Violence
May 16 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
“A Mother’s Cry” is a docu-series based on the true stories of mothers who have lost their sons and/or daughters to street and gun violence through the United States.
Khadijah-Catherine Taylor and Newark Speaks 2U want to bring the aftermath of such tragedies to the public awareness by getting the answers directly from the communities, families, and organizations.
To initiate an interstate journey interviewing mothers who have lost their children to street and gun violence asking the question; “How am I dealing with my loss?”
We also want to discuss how community activists and law enforcement agencies are working together to end the killings of young black and brown humans in these communities.
We have observed how television news will give the viewers names, maybe an assumed motive, a glimpse of the outraged community, but never give the audience a follow-up on the families who are also victims of such violence.
We have spoken, we have sat and we had grief enough is time for action!
