The NYPD has declared a portion of Flatbush a “Frozen Zone”, meaning media are not allowed in and people can be subjected to arrest for not following police orders. It basically means the area is under temporary martial law. The last times the NYPD declared a Frozen Zone was on the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and during the beginning of OWS.
Please call 311 to demand that everyone in connection to tonight’s Kimani vigil/march be released from the 71st precinct in Brooklyn.

I am happy and feel very fulfilled by my job and my personal relationships and it’s hard to be home upstate this weekend because I push the grief about sudden family deaths and stage four cancer and severe mental disorders and low income worries away from the immediate even though these people I love are still in me because ya know family and I just want everyone to be okay but I know I can’t make my mom stop sleeping in my dead uncle’s bed or make my grandma go outside and I would be scared too if I was my aunt knowing cancer is spreading and all i can do is visit as much as I can and show them their love and care for me makes me so happy. And I need to stop feeling guilty for being in a good not perfect i,.e still dealing with self destructive stuff because everyone here is glad I’m doing well
PLEASE MAKE THIS IN SIZE FAT, OK?

Although I am obsessed with all of Weems’ work, there is a special place in my heart for her The Kitchen Table Series. I think what gets me about this series is the simplicity; The ability to convey so much from one scene, one location, one family is amazing.
