John Malveaux: The murder of Ahmaud Arbery while he was jogging in Georgia brings to mind Joel Thompson's 'SEVEN LAST WORDS of the UNARMED'

John Malveaux of writes:

The recent murder of Ahmaud Arbery, a person of African descent who was shot to death, while jogging in Georgia brings to mind composer Joel Thompson's 'SEVEN LAST WORDS of the UNARMED', a multi-movement work honoring the lives of Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant, Eric Garner, Kenneth Chamberlain, Amadou Diallo, and John Crawford. See Joel Thompson and performance by Sphinx Symphony Organization and University of Michigan Men’s Glee Club, lead by conductor Eugene Rogers
