We are always more than our pain. We are joy. Random Acts of Flyness.

Remember, in the City of Baltimore there is an explicit agreement *not* to drug test officers after they are involved in use of force incidents. Why? (visit checkthepolice.org for an analysis of the contract)
If you had nothing to hide, why would you explicitly prohibit this?
Will the Mayor of Baltimore make the Acting Commissioner test the officers involved in the latest case of brutality?

I don’t post these videos often. But this is from Baltimore reportedly earlier today.
And the laws continue to protect these officers from any accountability and our elected officials remain silent.
How many more instances like this will have to happen?

How many instances like this have happened and nobody knows about them?

We deserve something better than this.

August 9th. #MikeBrown. #NeverForget

I took this video in August of 2014 when a movement was born. I’ll never forget the energy from those days or the sense of purpose.

The movement lives.


Chicago. @bbreaux, the GOAT.

Happy #ObamaDay.

It’s hard to find friends like Kaleb: thoughtful, kind, & really good at what they do. Tonight, we were #OTRII.

Kwasi is the man. #OTRII. New Jersey. Ivy Park.

I will be in a city near you soon! I hope to see you in the book tour!

You can buy tickets at deray.com. ✊🏾

Rachel Brian drew this from my keynote this morning at Big Picture Learning. I am always in awe of artists.
