Editor's Note: In 2009, in response to the killing of Oscar Grant, local organizations Urban Habitat and Media Alliance created the Oscar Grant Memorial Arts Project, curated by Christine Joy Ferrer, collecting work from over three dozen artists. Their goal was to gather the creative works dedicated to Oscar Grant from artists, musicians, writers, photographers and others.
This is her forward:
People are angry. Thousands have been appalled by the Oscar Grant shooting and have taken a new stand to fight injustice. Many have chosen to creatively express their stance through art. Songs have been written and dedicated to Oscar Grant. Poems, paintings and posters have been created. Graffiti artists have painted murals. Some of this is compelling art, some is ephemera. Some of this art is controversial in its subject matter or its expression, but above all this art is the expression of a critical moment in the movement to end police violence.
