Not about a Riot

naar4

“Not about a Riot” is the work of Malaika Aminata. A graduate of Morgan State University and a vital pat of the artistic community of Baltimore City, she was one of the first people I connected with upon returning home. What makes this film different than any other film that will be produced about the events of April/May is the voice behind the camera. Malaika shows what the mainsteam media didn’t, the joy in the uprising, the resilience in the street, the way community came together quickly to take care of what needed to be taken care of. That’s what’s missing form the narrative around the “Baltimore Riots”. Click this link to watch the trailer and support the film.
