#WECANTBREATHE - A Peaceful Protest;
#Winner of the 2015 Jazz Journalist Association "Short Form Video of the Year" Award;
Capsulocity.com gathered members of the New York City Jazz community to peacefully protest injustice and police brutality using the words "We Can't Breathe". The sign and words have become synonymous with "I Can't Breathe," which were the last words spoken by Eric Garner before he was killed using a chokehold by police in Staten Island on July 17, 2014. The controversial death was recorded on video and has spurred demonstrations around the world as well as artistic statements.
Providing the soundtrack of "We Shall Overcome" for this peaceful protest video is Trumpeter and 2014 Monk Competition winner Marquis Hill with commentary from vocalist Renee Neufville.
