Media Justice/Media Resistance


Houses not encampments

Decolonize Academy is a school led by the community and we do reports, and stories on the homeless people getting kicked out of their homes because nobody seems to care about these people on the streets. 

 

They came for us in the morning: What prison officials don’t want you to know about the raid on 200+ incarcerated Black people at Soledad

Emmett Till, the Scottsboro Boys, the Central Park 5, and the list goes on. The ramifications of being falsely accused of a crime in America can be, and often has been, deadly for Black people.

PoLice Terrorized For Being Houseless- My Mama's Story

Sudden knocking in the middle of the night on the battered door of the taped together 1970 Ford Station Wagon. Lights shining through the window, so much harsher than usual against the darkness that blanketed the area where the car was parked. A scared daughter and her weary mother, tired after many of these nights, most of them ending with one of them in jail, after being nearly beaten.

The youth did WeSearch about the vacant lots that were empty for days, maybe months.The youth skolas called the owners of the vacant lots. And Decolonize got one of the vacant lots and is building another Homefulness.

Fourth of July in City Terrace

At Herbert Circle the view reaches from Eastside to San Pedro, from the Chicano Alps to shores of the North Pacific.

People hurry here from carne asada and weenie grills to huddle in the middle of the street.

To seize from the holiday a way of seeing themselves in their own light.

 

In anticipation for darkness to come rushing, for the show to begin,

I was early to stand among the crowd.

 

Following the first explosion from an artillery shell others take flight.

In an instant, night is set on fire.
