“I CAN’T BREATHE’ is a short music film we created to show the painful conversation many black parents have had to have with their children who are often too young and innocent to even know why they would ever be seen differently in this world. So before the hashtags fade and the marches slowdown, we will continue to use our voices to speak out until black lives truly matter.

Sometimes it's hard to express the pain felt when watching your people being killed across the world simply for being black. I created this short video to express a small fraction of that pain visually in the hope that it raises awareness and a push for change.
