Powerful ‘Black Lives Matter’ Mannequin Challenge Will Give You Chills
This Powerful ‘Black Lives Matter’ Mannequin Challenge Will Give You Chills. Unlike the Kenneth Bolton and Joe Feagin book, “Black in Blue” which depicts the historically white police precincts that have been slowly integrating over the past few decades, and how African-American officers still encounter racism on the job; the cast of the upcoming indie feature film, “Black In Blue” re-created some of the iconic scenes from incidents of police brutality in America combined with the actual sound recorded from those moments. The filmmakers created the short film in order take something light-hearted and make it serious to have an impact.
The dramatic feature film explores the current racial tensions between the police and those they have sworn to protect. This heartfelt masterpiece bridges the gap between police officers and urban communities across the country. The Writer pulls no punches from either side of the issues when dealing with race, civil rights, loss, love, corruption, redemption, and forgiveness. This film takes the awareness our nation has been forced into and ignites it, motivating real change within the police force and in our communities.
In the United States, major political and social movements have involved excessive force by police, including the civil rights movement of the 1960s, anti-war demonstrations, the War on Drugs, and the Global War on Terrorism. In 2014, the UN Committee against Torture condemned police brutality and excessive use of force by law enforcement in the US, and highlighted the “frequent and recurrent police shootings or fatal pursuits of unarmed black individuals.”
