Violinist Damien Escobar Pays Tribute To Mike Brown With ‘We Shall Overcome’
As America comes to grips with the Ferguson grand jury’s decision not to indicte officer Darren Wilson, protesters around the nation are taking to the streets to march in support of Mike Brown and against what some believe to be a miscarriage of justice.
Two time EMMY award-winning artist, Damien Escobar recreated “We Shall Overcome”–a key protest song during the Civil Rights movement–to honor Mike Brown, Trayvon Martin and his friend Sean Bell who was killed eight years ago today while leaving his bachelor party in Queens, NY the day before his wedding.
Dressed in a black hoodie and visibly upset Escobar plays through the heartache and grief of yet another tragedy.
