It’s been one year since the killing of unarmed 18 year old Mike Brown by the hands of then Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson on August 9, 2014. Since Brown’s death, the state sanctioned killings of Black and Brown lives continues to make media headlines. In Ferguson, mourners stood at the site where Mike Brown was gunned down to take 4 1/2 minutes of silence. Elsewhere, people took to social media to honor the life of Mike Brown. As of 6pm PST, Twitter erupted with over 55k tweets of #FergusonTaughtMe

Originally from the Bay, I was uprooted from my eclectic surroundings and forced to spend my formative years in conservative San Joaquin County (Stockton) after Loma Prieta. Earthquake central couldn't deter me, and in 2010, I relocated to San Francisco. After a year of not being rich or knowing how to code, I moved to Oakland, where my momma and my momma's momma were born. Oakland has changed A LOT from when I was growing up, and I love getting reacquainted with my roots. Like our city's logo, Oakland grounds me, it's where I've rediscovered myself and unleashed my creativity. If I were a tattoo, I'd be eyes on my eyelids so I can snooze the day without anyone noticing (which I do often.) If I were a street in Oakland, I'd be Skyline Blvd, because, the view. Favorite spot in Oakland? I love it all! But I'd have to say Redwood Regional Park...or Raj Indian in Piedmont.
