@ayannapressley made history becoming the first black congresswoman of Massachusetts and sat down with us to discuss her fight for women’s rights and equity within the corridors of power. This was easily one of my favorite moments and people I met this year, providing hope at a time we need it most 🙏🏾🙌🏿✊🏿 check out this and more stories we produced for Angela Rye’s Midterm Election Special: Our Vote.

Glad to share some stills from our BET special we shot/produced for Angela Rye’s Midterm Election Special featuring @michelleobama, @corybooker @shaunking, @ayannapressley, newly elected St Louis/Ferguson State prosecutor Wesley Bell, and Latosha Brown from Black Votes Matter Fund shot by @underhill.film #midtermelections #blackvotesmatter #vote
I spoke with Dr. Suzanne Bell - who served on Obama’s Commission on Forensic Science - to discuss the problematic nature in which science is used in our judicial system to prosecute people - including the innocent. I had the privilege of hosting a new series from the @innocenceproject and @vice covering wrongful convictions, compensation legislation, and how forensic science was used to incarcerate innocent people and even send some to death row. Beautifully constructed series by @lydiasrandall @jaymoneygreen @lara_fdz @saramrodrig @dannythedp @maxytiberi and more. Check it out live now on vice’s youtube. #innocenceproject #forensicscience #massincarceration
This is me and Rakem getting rushed by 8 police officers with machine guns. New @vice work on the FBI’s “Black Identity Extremist” assessment which echoes the history of CoINTELPRO - a dark part of our civil-rights history which has haunted me and defined my life’s work to a large degree. Thank you to @ematson09 @saramrodrig @francipagani @danzabs @dwilliamturner @danielferry_ @greg_eggebeen for creating, believing, and supporting the value of stories like these 🙏🏿🙏🏿 stay woke 👁 #vice #fbi #bie #cointelpro #civilrights
