Every 28 hours in the United States of America, an African-American citizen is killed by a police officer. With the recent deaths of Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Akai Gurley and others, the issue of police violence and racial profiling is all over news and social media. But the one perspective we're not hearing in mainstream media is that of young people. A group of young people in New York City explore how the issue is affecting their community. Created by Roxy Travers, Lior Zitser, Federico Caruso, Jasmine Taula, Celeste Azzi, Ali Mirza, Michael Jacobson as part of The LAMP's 2014-2015 AYV Program
