Wednesday watch: Philando

Drummer Kendrick Scott created this moving and painful tribute to Philando Castile, who was shot by police in Minnesota while he was in his car reaching for his ID while his girlfriend and her daughter watched.

The video combines drumming with heartbreaking audio clips from the Facebook live video by Castile’s girlfriend Diamond Reynolds. Scott talked to Mic.com about the importance of highlighting these injustices through art, saying “The more and more we point it out in our art, we’ll show people what the real and true truth is.”
