Urban Cusp has put together #lastwords of young black men shot by police. #OYRchallenge#lastwords

The following images reflect the last words of ten unarmed African American men curated by journalist Shirin Barghi. According to her tweets, Barghi says, “I created these images to raise awareness about racist police violence in America and as an expression of solidarity. I experienced police brutality in my native Iran, and the struggle here to confront that violence resonated with me.”The information that accompanies each was posted on Upworthy by Andrea Garcia-Vargas to serve as a fact check and source of information for each image.
