Timeline of Police Brutality in the US: Jackie Martinez, 2015


This project was undertaken in the Spring 2015 semester, with a group of high school students at the Harvey MLK High School (NYC), in the aftermath of Ferguson, during the beginning of the BlackLivesMatter movement; at a time when the topic of police brutality was foremost in the minds of these youth. “Why do police kill black people and never get caught?”, asked one of the students in this class. This question became the catalyst for the timeline of police brutality and movements of resistants in the United States, as a way to educate the community on this history of institutionalized violence in the country.
