How Trayvon Martin’s death launched a new generation of black activismAugust 29, 2014 | Mychal Denzel Smith | The Nation
On July 13, 2013, George Zimmerman was found not guilty in the murder of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed African-American 17-year-old walking home from a 7-Eleven. What The Washington Post and other media outlets had dubbed “the trial of the century” was over, with a deeply unsettling verdict. In the fifteen months between Trayvon’s death and the beginning of the trial, people across the country had taken to the streets, as well as to newspapers, television and social media, to decry the disregard for young black lives in America. For them—for us—this verdict was confirmation.
A group of 100 black activists, ranging in age from 18 to 35, had gathered in Chicago that same weekend. They had come together at the invitation of Cathy J. Cohen, a professor of political science at the University of Chicago and the author of Democracy Remixed: Black Youth and the Future of American Politics, and her organization, the Black Youth Project. Launched in 2004, the group was born as a research project to study African-American youth; in the decade since then, Cohen has turned the BYP into an activist organization. The plan for this meeting was to discuss movement building beyond electoral politics. Young black voters turned out in record numbers in the 2008 and ‘12 elections: 55 percent of black 18-to-24-year-olds voted in 2008, an 8 percent increase from 2004, and while a somewhat smaller number—49 percent—voted in 2012, they still outpaced their white counterparts. But how would young black voters hold those they had put in office accountable? And what were their demands?
This group, coming together under the banner Black Youth Project 100 (“BYP100” for short), was tasked with figuring that out. As with any large gathering, people disagreed, cliques were formed, and tensions began to mount. The organizers struggled to build consensus within this diverse group of academics, artists and activists. And then George Zimmerman was acquitted. The energy in the room changed.
“A moment of trauma can oftentimes present you with an opportunity to do something about the situation to prevent that trauma from happening again,” said Charlene Carruthers, one the activists at the conference.
Carruthers, a Chicago native, has been an organizer for more than ten years, starting as a student at Wesleyan University. She has led grassroots and digital campaigns for, among others, the Women’s Media Center, National People’s Action and ColorofChange.org. She heard all types of sounds emanating from the people in the room that day, from crying to screaming. “I don’t believe the pain was a result, necessarily, of shock because Zimmerman was found not guilty,” Carruthers said, “but of yet another example…of an injustice being validated by the state—something that black people were used to.”
Some members of BYP100 went into the streets of downtown Chicago and led a rally. Others stayed behind and drafted the group’s first collective statement. Addressed to “the Family of Brother Trayvon Martin and to the Black Community,” it read in part: “When we heard ‘not guilty,’ our hearts broke collectively. In that moment, it was clear that Black life had no value. Emotions poured out—emotions that are real, natural and normal, as we grieved for Trayvon and his stolen humanity. Black people, WE LOVE AND SEE YOU.”
The group recorded a reading of the letter and released the video on July 14, one day after the verdict. “That was the catalyst,” Carruthers said, “that cemented [the idea] that the people in that room had to do something collectively moving forward.”
…
The demise of the Black Panther Party in the mid-1970s left a void in black political organizing. The Panthers weren’t without problems (the sexist nature of their leadership was a big one), but they represented the last gasps of a national black organizing that combined radical political education, direct action, youth engagement and community services. In the years since, racial-justice groups have struggled to effect change as profound as they managed to achieve during the heyday of the civil-rights and Black Power movements. The Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network is mostly visible to the extent that Sharpton is able to leverage his own platform and personality for the causes he cares about. The same is true of the Rev. Jesse Jackson and his Rainbow PUSH Coalition. Until Benjamin Jealous took over as president in 2008, the NAACP—the nation’s oldest civil-rights organization—was battling perceptions of irrelevance. Under Jealous’s leadership, the NAACP changed course, but the question lingered as to whether it was equipped to fight the new challenges faced by black America. The Malcolm X Grassroots Movement has existed since 1993 without much fanfare; the National Hip-Hop Political Convention, started in 2004, fizzled. “The times we live in,” Carruthers said, “call for a resurgence of national black-liberation organizing.”
This past May, I traveled to Chicago for the “Freedom Dreams, Freedom Now!” conference, hosted by a number of organizations, including BYP100, on the campus of the University of Illinois at Chicago. The conference was intended as an “intergenerational, interactive gathering” of scholars, artists and activists commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of Freedom Summer and discussing contemporary social-justice organizing. The opening plenary featured a keynote address by Julian Bond, a co-founder of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and former board chair of the NAACP. He presented a history of Freedom Summer, the SNCC-led movement to register voters and get black people to the polls in Mississippi, before a premiere screening of the PBS documentary Freedom Summer, directed by Stanley Nelson.
But the aim of the conference wasn’t just to reminisce. It was a precursor to Freedom Side, a collective that includes members of BYP100, the Dream Defenders and United We Dream, an immigrant-youth-led organization, as well as more established groups like the NAACP and AFL-CIO. Before the conference, as part of the Freedom Summer celebration, the Dream Defenders hosted “freedom schools” throughout Florida, talking to young people about criminalization, mass incarceration and the school-to-prison pipeline. Voter registration drives were also held across the country.
The day after the conference ended, BYP100 hosted an organizer-training event at the University of Chicago. Early on, the attendees were split into two groups, and the two sides engaged each other in a call-and-response chant that referenced historical greats like Nat Turner, Angela Davis, Ida B. Wells, Mumia Abu-Jamal and Fred Hampton. But even as they paid homage to their history in song, these young activists had their eyes on the future. Members led sessions on personal narratives in organizing, how to handle interactions with police officers, and building political power.

Compelling read. There’s a few points I would dissent on, but overall, I think Trayvon will be seen as the genesis of this current wave Black action and activism.

passerineart:

I’ve been presented with the most adoring designs and intricate personalities, I’ve been introduced to a plethora of gorgeous styles and artistic abilities I am envious of. I’ve seen my characters the way you see them, presented in your lines by your sides as you’ve taken up your weapons to fight against Sins as Magical Girls from the Sassy Sister Universe.

Thank you and thank you all for making this possible, for letting me see all your ideas and designs. Thank you so much for the tremendous support you’ve given me, for the praise and flattery and for pushing my story along as you all inspire me to keep working. Without your support, I doubt I’d be able to make it this far with my universe. Without your support, I doubt there would be any Sassy Sisters the way they are today.

So thank you all, I love all the contributions and alll the entries you’ve shown me, and my magical girls are probably just boiling over with their egos by now! It’s been a great ride and I’ve enjoyed myself so much, and I hope you have, too!

With more than 50 entries, I had to come to a conclusion and find my winners. It was hard. Really hard. So we added one extra winner and one extra honorable! With help from my judging panel we finally settled on four winning entries of the Design Yourself As A Magical Girl contest, as well as 6 honorable mentions, who will all be rewarded!

So, here we are at last;

1st Place goes to;

Sushicore!

♡ Fighting sins by moonlight! Avoiding people by daylight! ♡

Your piece just blew us all away and was immediately running for first place; the amount of detail is astonishing and the style, composition and use of clours is just spot on. I love the dynamic between you and Chrisphie and you both look amazing. This entry truly had everything I was looking for, a kick-ass personality and bio, a beautiful and eye-catching design, and a composition that made us all impressed. 

I personally adore the way you used your own style, yet it all seemed to fit right in there in the Sassy Sisters universe, something which blew me away. The style itself of the image reminds me of a stained-glass painting. Thats my weak spot. ; - ; So thank you, thank you so much for sharing this lovely piece of work with the world and most of all: CONGRATULATIONS! ; 7 ; <3

Your prize is: one full-body, flat-shaded drawing of yourself/an OC of yours + 5 days of promotion on Petitepasserine!


2nd Place goes to:

I love kindles design too ahh SO GOOD 💕  thank you so much for joining and good luck!

This might be a bit cheesy but when I first saw your entry, I had to double check if you were truly joining my competition because your technique and style is the technique and style of people I aspire to be. It’s just so professional, theres a red thread through the entire piece and it had me staring for quite a while as I took in the fact that such a talented artist was joining; and drawing my characters. I blushed quite a lot.

There is not a single thing I dislike about your entry. It’s different in the most delectable way and seeing you interpret my universe was an honor. Your piece embodies the more dramatic sides of the Sassy sisters, and I love it.So thank you ever so much and CONGRATULATIONS! ; 7 ; <3

Your prize is: one waist-up flat shaded drawing of yourself/an OC of yours + 3 days of promotions on PetitePasserine!

3rd Place goes to: 

Hacuubii!

hacuubii:    My entry for Passerine’s contest v//////v ANIMU CLEMENTINE  At first I thought I’d use Liling for this one… I thought Clementine is so cute and popular so everyone would probably draw her. I really wanted to stand out haha. but then I couldn’t get Clementine off my mind&#160;; o&#160;; I think she’s too important to me. She helps me accept my body every time I see her on my dash! instead of thinking “I’m not THAT chubby…” I think “Yeah! I’m chubby! and I’m also cute and magical like any other girl can be.” so thank you Clementine! Thank you Muri! ♥  My magical name would be “Daisy Daydream”? I think haha this is embarrassing. My sin is probably cheating on boyfriends constantly. I wanted my outfit to be more “Pajamas” than “Lingerie” since I don’t really enjoy being sexy as much as I enjoy looking innocent and cute.   I guess I could be Clem’s friend? I really hope so&#160;; o&#160;; so nervous she’s too perfect    Daisy Daydream oh my gooosh I can&#8217;t get over how original and creative all of you are with coming up with magical girl names&#160;; __&#160;; SO CUTE and oh gods THIS IS GORGEOUS&#160;; A&#160;; I&#8217;m so glad Clementine makes you feel that way ahh! you make a positively adorable magical girl and I think no matter your size or body everybody are able to make beautiful and super cute magical girls oh boy&#160;; __&#160;; &lt;3 thank you so much for joining my contest and good luck! I love the design and clementine oh BOYYYY this is so cuuute

Your entry was the sweetest of the confectionery; it had both me and my judges melting with joy. Your piece represents the magical girl genres shoujo-feeling and the happy-go-lucky sides of the Sassy Sisters; and the character you picked couldn’t have been more appropriate! I just adore this piece, the composition is simple but sweet (literally), and you two look so adorable together!

I also remember your weapon was one of the weapons I really liked, as well as the entire design of your magical girl self! So thank you so much and CONGRATULATIONS! ; 7 ; 

Your prize is: one waist-up skech of yourself/an OC of yours + 2 days of promotions on PetitePasserine!

4th place goes to:

littlecloudchild!

This was one of the entries that legitimately had me gasp out loud in real life. This is exactly what I was looking for design-wise, and I just love how you’ve gone gothic as opposed to all cutesy and light, as pretty much all my own designs are; this almost makes me want to go gothic again, and thats a huge feat. ; - ; 

The eye for detail you have is just amazing, and the golden details of your design is what won all the judges over immediately. We just could not include you and your amazing piece of work! So thank you so much for joining and CONGRATULATIONS! ; 7 ; 

Your prize is: one waist-up skech of yourself/an OC of yours + 1 days of promotion on PetitePasserine!

Honorable mentions: 

There were so many amazing entries so restricting myself to 5 honorable mentions was very difficult… so we extended it to 6! In the end, I felt that these entries really portrayed what I was looking for, so congratulations to all five of you! You will each get a promotion of your blog (your chosen blog, either your art or main blog) for one day! <3

(click on the URLS to view and love their entries!)

Milliei: You’re like the powerpuff girls except even more hardcore, and with guns. What is there not to love about this? Because I love this so, so much. Congratulations! ; 7 ; 

Missgivenofucks: This entry blew me away with its composition; it’s so theatrical and full of drama and I just adore it. Congratulations! ;7 ; 

Tartkiss: SO. CUTE. ; - ; this melted all our hearts, the use of colours is amazing and the entire piece of work itself is just amazing! Congratulations! ; 7 ; 

kiyori-n: This piece is so lovely, I just love both of your expressions because it looks like you’re talking gossip about some nasty Sin on the horizon… so cute. I love it, congratulations! ; 7 ; 

yurifairy: This piece actually made me open SAI to practice composition because, well, damn that composition is GOOD. I was just amazed with this entire piece, it’s so amazing. Congratulations! ; 7 ;
