O adolescente George Stinney Jr, de descendência Africana, foi a pessoa mais nova a ser condena a morte no século XX nos Estados Unidos. Ele tinha apenas 14 anos de idade quando foi executado numa cadeira eléctrica. Durante o seu julgamento, até no dia da sua execução, ele carregava sempre uma Bíblia nas mãos, clamando ser inocente. Ele foi acusado de matar duas meninas brancas, Betty de 11 anos, e Mary de 7, os corpos foram encontrados próximo da casa onde residia o adolescente com os seus pais.
Naquela altura, todos os membros do jurado eram brancos. O julgamento durou apenas 2h30, e a sentença foi ditada 10 minutos depois.
Os pais do menino foram ameaçados, e impedidos de se fazerem presentes na sala de julgamento, e posteriormente expulsos daquela cidade.
Antes da execução, George passou 81 dias na prisão sem poder ver os seus pais.
Ficou detido numa solitária, 80 km da sua cidade. Foi ouvido sozinho, sem a presença dos pais ou de um advogado. Ele foi eletrocutado com 5,380 Volts⚡ na cabeça, imagina essa voltagem toda na cabeça do um adolescente. 70 anos depois, a inocência dele, foi finalmente provada por um juiz no Sul de Carolina. O menino era inocente, alguém armou tudo para culpá-lo, por ser negro. As fotos são do filme "Carolina Skeletons" de 1991, em que a história de George é contada.

WE’RE COMING TO HOUSTON‼️
We are excited to announce the second selection for 83 Days! Thanks to the International @HoustonBlackFilmFest for selecting us. Spread the word and let’s pack the house to tell #GeorgeStinneyJr ’s story!🎬

Sketches for bigger pieces —— I think there will be a painful awakening on the horizon. It will shock the system like illness unknown. The planets are shifting (tectonic). The names of your friends aren’t true. They know, I know, they’re not lost like you. The more I’ve read the sicker I become, like Noni Juice it’s still so rare. Bundles of hair, often gray, wool like in texture, mind astray. 1866, you have been scalped. The seasons change like your body’s tint. I’ve become my own little fire, hands for hire, my mother often says to me “Kevin, I’m so tired.” In my mind I say “that’s why they lull us to sleep, Momma.” It’s the design I’ve learned and recite on site. I am of veal, born in jail. My people, dearest people we are alive in a state of hell.

“You and I are as Seamless as the Sun” (2018)— Sometimes I have to step back and remind myself that this is a silhouette of a fourteen year old’s mugshot. A child that didn’t make it to fifteen. Over seventy years later and it’s still not odd to see black children end up this way. It could have easily been this way for me and I would just be a memory to those who loved me and a profile to those who hate my culture, ethnic origin, and light. Rest well George, your life is putting in work on this planet.

And with that, somehow, it’s already time to breath goodbye to #stinneyopera until January and the @prototypefest ! For now, I hold it all in my heart, soul, and voice...#stinney #georgestinneyjr #history #socialjustice #opera

In 1944 George Stinney Jr, a black teenager was accused of murdering two white girls. He was tried and executed by electric chair in just 83 days at the young age of 14. A judge threw out Stinneys conviction in 2014.

“In the Wilderness and Windfall of Our Existence” (2018)— For the DOS (descendants of slaves), for the COD (children of the diaspora), for the IOL (inhabitants of the original lands) for the BAPS, for the BLAQ, for the things we keep close that weren’t made by you. For the different tongues we’ve learned to speak, for the latent humanity we’ve learned to eat, for the YBF (young, black, and free), for BAD, for SAD, for MAD, and the Bougie. To the high rises, to the grey and purple hues in the sky, to those who wish to not identify (X). To the sounds we make and the personhood we take. To the laughter and daylight in your body. To the dancehall, to the ballroom, to the ocean floor. Family, friends, strangers in kin I am praying for your your survival in the wilderness and windfall of our existence. .

“I Heard God Laughing” (2018) First thank you to those who made your voice heard through voting and those who couldn’t being with your community in spirit. I feel fortunate to be able to and have. During this residency I have been going through deep self reflection. Noise is free and being heard is often not. This work was intended to do two things: compare the anxiety placed on black children based on the loudness of their presence and slave collars historically using sound to alert the world as to who is and isn’t free. I have made quite a few of these and look forward to sharing them with you and hopefully showing them in Chicago soon. Also big thank you to the folks who have reached out to purchase some of these 🖤 you help me keep the child in me creating through honoring the children we have lost.

It has taken almost 8 months for me to get this piece home. Time and energy were never aligned to make it happen. Now I can’t imagine my space without this absolutely beautiful and heartbreaking piece by the amazing artist @teepopart. I love supporting fellow creatives. Can’t wait for the collab project to come to life.

this makes me SO angry and the last pictures show so much sadness and fear. rest in peace.

Even In a movie its Sad we gotta teach our #blackchildren black #teenager at a young age how they will be perceived & treated by the police. They treat our young black youth like they don't matter. It's like we are paying our tax dollars for this bullshit treatment. Our Black Fathers life matter our Black sons life matter our Black brothers life matter! There are corrupt cops that purposely have bad intentions and the police department is fully aware of it. They ignore it or the cops that kill unarmed black men cops get payed leave. Like a slap on the wrist all the time smfh.Everybody want to be black but Nobody wants the problems it comes with! Well this what we have to go through everyday 24/7 , 365 days out of the year. Smfh They just want to treat us like they did with #Rodneyking #emmittill #Georgestinneyjr just #policebrutality towards are #BlackKing. & #Blackqueens. My #Caribbean Brothers & Sisters as well as #AfricanAmericans in America or Black people around the world all the #Melanin people y’all need to be like #1804 to get y’all Respect from those Crackers. Y'all need to unite! We owe it to our Ancestors for the struggle they went through & to end the Racism going on today! #Racist #BlackJustice #BlackCollege #WestIndies #Blackwallstreet #Revolution #BlackKings #blackisbeautiful #nubianqueen #blackhistory #BlackQueen #trayvonmartin #AfricanAmericanHistory #BlackRevolt #Malcolmx #melaninpoppin #Blackpride #blackpower
