Huffington Post contributor Shirin-Banou Barghi is credited with creating these series of graphics that aim to pay tribute to those killed by police officers.
As pundits and protestors debate over the results of Michael Brown’s autopsy, the conclusion is simply sad: the 18-year-old was surrendering at the time of his death. According to the autopsy report, the gunshots that struck the high school graduate in the head went from “back to front,” which would mean that Brown was conceding himself to authorities at the time of impending death.
Taken from the Instagram of Pharoh Martin (@AGuyNamedPharoh), Barghi’s curated creations mark just how frequent and how startling the deaths of these black men were when they happened–and how they shouldn’t be forgotten. With that said, Black Enterprise pays tribute to these numerous black men who undeservedly loss their lives at the hands of police.
