A Photo Is Worth...

Hello everyone!

It has been quite some time since I last posted an entry here. Fortunately, I have the pleasure of returning with something worth writing. At some point, we need to sort out the joke of how we address ethnicity in this country. People are divided by, unfortunately, a government-mandated identification of what kind of American one is. 

Are you European? Are you Caribbean? Are you a white, black, mixed, Asian or other type of Caribbean? Are you African? What kind of African are you? Are you Asian? What kind of Asian are you? These kinds of questions are included in job applications, applications for military service as well as the U.S. Census. We are coerced into obsession with our differences in this country. This is, I guess, supposed to us bring us together as "... one nation indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." 


Local teacher, musician, photographer, videographer, artist and, now, visual/musical activist, David Nunley, sets out to complete the title of this entry in his photo book & accompanying documentary DVD - Milwaukee Rally For Justice.

The photography speaks for itself while the video is accompanied by the sparse piano solo, Loss, written and played by Nunley.

Please, check it out.
