Originally designed as a segment of the feature What Color is Blue, after being cut from the film, Black Skin, Black Masks, now stands alone as a visual-zine.

Words and handwriting taken from the zine "Black Skin, Black Masks", which is a black anarchist's perspective on seeing live streams and footage of the September 2016 Charlotte, North Carolina riots in response to the police murder of Keith Lamont Scott.

Footage is re-appropriated from main stream news outlets, right wing independent media outlets, and Facebook Live streams of participants.
