Pour la Danse

"To the dance"

It's 2020 and here we are again...here we are still.

The events of the past month with the murder of Amhaud Abery, Breonna Taylor, George Lloyd and Manuel Ellis are part of a history of racism and systematic oppression in the United States that goes back over 400 years.
