"Oh No", is a reactionary work that the catches the moment of the incident. That moment can be emotional, informational or confrontational. "Oh No" is reflective of the story you here later from family, friends or the media. It's the moment of shock.

"On Our Way Home" talks about community and how we live and work in that community.
"No More Fear", (Right)
"Child's Play", (Left) came from a shooting that happened in the mid 1980'a in a Memphis, TN trailer park. The police were called after someone reported seeing a black male with a gun in the trailer park. A white policeman arrived and confronted a little boy between the age of 10 and 12 playing with a toy gun. Reports said he thought the gun was real, so he shot and killed the boy. This bothered me for year because the police officer didn't care that it was a little boy. Unfortunately, this will continue to happen many more times, it's 2019.
