History delivers memories to inspire, but it also casts a shadow, impossible to escape and irresponsible to forget.
History teaches that while Mike Brown’s murder was tragic, it was predictable, just another incident in a long trajectory of state violence. Ferguson was not a flaw in the system, it was a feature.
History’s rhyme is tracked by a rhythm, a steady beat of repression and resistance. Ferguson provided another verse, another measure, another 16 bars.
