#Bars4Justice a.k.a. Bars4Justice

Queen Muhammad Ali & Hakeem KhaaliqNation19 Magazine (a Mobile Regime brand)

During the one year anniversary of Mike Brown's death in Ferguson, Missouri, a benefit concert in commemoration of his life was organized by Hip-Hop and civil rights activists including Common, Talib Kweli, Immortal Technique, Renita Lamkin, Cornell West, Rosa Clemente, Jasiri Smith, Bree Newsome, and Rahiel Tesfamariam. The concert was abruptly interrupted when the activists find out that a Black teen had been shot by Ferguson police officers that same night. To address the shooting, the performers gave more than their talent when they come face to face with the justice system in Ferguson, Missouri. Directed By: Queen Muhammad Ali & Hakeem Khaaliq Produced by: Nation19 Magazine (a Mobile Regime brand) Co-Produced by: Ronald Sims Steven Powell Cinematography by: Hakeem Khaaliq Edited by: Hakeem Khaaliq & Queen Muhammad Ali Re-Recording Mixers: Michael A.
