In this video, Jamaican-born artist, Nari Ward meditates on tensions between African-American police officers and young men of color.  The film features a retired police officer who’s actually the father of the 2 young men in the video.  The audio track combines the reciting of the Miranda Rights and the father’s spontaneously spoken encouragement to his son during filming “you can do this”.  This is a powerful piece, no doubt – but what do you make of it?
