Checkpoint by Jasiri X
I was recently blessed to be a part of a delegation of artists and activists, including Dream Hampton, Ferrari Sheppard, Remi Kanazi, Professor Robyn Spencer, and Bill Fletcher Jr., that traveled to Palestine and Israel. I honestly was not prepared for the level of oppression, discrimination, and racism I witnessed against Palestinians and African refugees. I was also inspired by the resistance to the occupation by the Israeli, Palestinian, and African organizers we met.
My new video “Checkpoint” is based on what I saw firsthand. “Checkpoint” is produced by Agent of Change, and directed by Haute Muslim.
