"Say Their Name" focuses on the assault and killing of unarmed Black people by police and in ‘Stand Your Ground’ states, highlighting incidents throughout the United States.

Serving as a memorialization for these individuals, we learn about who these people were through the the words of the people that knew them best, while also helping us understand what these situations do to their families and communities not only in the immediate aftermath, but also what happens when the news-cycle moves on and the social media attention shifts focus.

We offer solutions, spread awareness and support for these families & communities, including a crowdfunding campaign throughout the series to directly benefit the families impacted by these incidents (they receive 100% of those proceeds), so that we can make an immediate tangible difference.

    Say Their Name: #GetLouder

    Say Their Name: #GetLouder

    Adell and Chris wrap up Season 1 of Say Their Name, reflecting on what they learned and their call to action with the #GetLouder campaign as we support Georgia in the Senate Runoff.


    CALL TO ACTION:
    Donate to Families - https://gf.me/u/yk5y4f


    #GetLouder is a rallying cry for all Black and Brown communities that have been disproportionately impacted by policing in America. It is an ethos, but is also a call-to-action that amplifies the act of voting as well as collective storytelling. We have to #GetLouder in and for Georgia because creating a Democratic senate is critical in setting us up to pass much needed legislation like the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. By amplifying our voice and the voices of families who continue to live with the trauma of police violence, this campaign will build on Say Their Name podcast to further enforce the need for reform, accountability, and collective investment in making change.

    WARNING:
    CHIME #1 (skip ahead 2 minute 34 seconds)
    So after that fight, Tony did about an hour long Facebook Live, pretty much talking about all the trauma that he's experienced in his life, from being beaten from five years old, for 12 years. Not having the love of the family, not having the love of the community, being locked up for 15 years of his adult life. Pretty much being warehoused, not getting any treatment or anything like that. And one thing that when I saw it, and I know Tony from growing up. There are so many Tony's out there. And that's what drew me to the story. Whether it be the trauma, whether it be the disappointment, whether it be, people use you, all those kinds of things, and you never know when somebody's at their end. And Tony was clearly at his end.
    And so he said, in the video, he was going to find him, he was going to get revenge and kill him. And that it was going to have to be a standoff with law enforcement, because he wasn't going back to jail. And so the next morning, the people who he fought, live in the same apartment complex that he did. So he stayed over at a friend's house to avoid it, went home to change clothes, saw one of the guys, Malik and saw him sitting in the car, he approached him. There was a stab and both of them, ended up stabbed. Malik passed away. Tony was also stabbed. Tony then called, Wanda McDade, which is Tony's mom, on the way back to the apartment. And by the time they got back to the apartment, Tony noticed one law enforcement officer pulling up. So Tony walked over to the tree where you might've saw some of the videos.
    There was a tree where Tony was killed, and Wanda got out of the car, went straight to the officer and said, you got to help him. You got to help him. He's suicidal. Wanda McDade's mom still refer to Tony as a daughter, say, my daughter, she's suicidal, she's suicidal. You got to help her. They just kept approaching, another officer pulled up. And from what everybody was saying, didn't say much, it was barely out of his car, and shot Tony five times. They found shells inside the squad car. The original story, mom said that Tony didn't have a gun, law enforcement officer saying that Tony did have a gun.

    CHIME #1 (skip ahead 1 minute)
    At the same time, because they called it in, this other officer Fallis. had decided to just block off the parking lot and say, nobody in, nobody out, So Fallis was there, the other officers, the black officer and there was one other officer that came up the hill. Those officers are telling Fallis to stop that vehicle, stop that vehicle. So, when you read the report, it says that he was like, banging in the cars, bumper cars, and bumped this car, bumped that car, speeding through the parking lot. They’re saying, hey, stop. And the officer just started shooting and the first shot went straight through the windshield, hit him right away. And then he kept shooting. So it was a lot of bullets down the side of the car. So he kept shooting him as he drove away into the back windshield. But Duane, he didn’t make it probably about 200 yards down the street, car drove into the woods and he died right there on the scene.

    CHIME #1 (skip ahead 1 minute 3 seconds)
    And, that morning when I called, he was in the dollar store I guess. And somebody told me ... I can’t remember who it was. They said that he got the call and he made a statement saying that I hope I don’t have to go kill nobody. Well, he told somebody that, and they told me, but they didn’t want to-
    Go on record?
    Go on record. They just- They told you that he said that he was going to end up killing one of them little young n*****s out there on that medication. This is the same officer that went inside a church and dragged the man out and beat him. Threw him across the ground and broke his shoulder in front of a bunch of church members.

    WARNING:
    CHIME #1 (skip ahead 1 minute)
    By the time I'm like this far to him, like, I'm here Officer Brown there. By the time my feet hit the second step, all I hear is pop, pop, pop, pop, pop. And I'm like, fall back, like what's going on? 
    My daughter Shameka, she told the story, 
    Because my daughter was standing right there looking. she watched everything. And she told me that it was like a little tussle thing. You know, Kaldrick jumped back in the tub, just probably afraid. And I don't know, if it was a battle or what, 
    He shot him, then he grabbed him around and he laid him down to the floor.
    The last thing I heard Kaldrick say was, Meka, go get my mama.

Will Not Listen

Flawed and divisive on its face. There are stories that need to be told and change that needs to happen, but the telling must be truthful and balanced so that the changes are appropriate. Racism is an edge that cuts in all directions, not just one.
