Sights & Sounds from the Oscar Grant Memorial-One Year Later We Still Remember


There was a memorial for Oscar Grant, a 22 year old father who was murdered by BART police a year ago while he laid face down, unarmed on a subway platform with his hands behind his back. Many people from the community came out and spoke including his mother Reverand  Wanda Johnson and city council Desley Brooks who got into the ass of the BART officials who did show up…Here’s some of rthe sights and sounds from that day
