The importance of artists speaking out, and people coming to their defense when they are attacked.
On Saturday, October 24, Director and Writer Quentin Tarantino stood before the Rise Up October protest and bravely and powerfully called out murdering police: "I am a human being with a conscience and when I see murder, I cannot stand by and I have to call the murdered, the murdered and the murderers, the murderers."
For this he has been attacked and threatened by police organizations in New York, LA, Philadelphia and elsewhere.
A number of artists, activists and family members whose loved ones were murdered by police – and who were inspired by the presence of Quentin Tarantino – have spoken out and defended him.
We hear from:
