#Bars4Justice a.k.a. Bars4Justice
On the one year anniversary of Mike Brown's death in Ferguson, Missouri, a benefit concert in commemoration of his life was organized by Hip-Hop and civil rights activists Common, Talib Kweli, Immortal Technique, Renita Lamkin, Cornell West, Rosa Clemente, Jasiri Smith, Bree Newsome, and Rahiel Tesfamariam. The concert was abruptly interrupted when the activists find out that a Black teen had been shot by Ferguson police officers that same night. To address the shooting, the performers gave more than their talent when they come face to face with the justice system in Ferguson, Missouri.

Reviews
"This serves as a good discussion starter about social justice". - Video Librarian
"Suitable for high school classes and college courses in cultural anthropology, political anthropology, anthropology of race, anthropology of violence, and American studies". - ​​Anthropology Review Database
"Because it sheds a powerful light on racial and socioeconomic injustice as well as the factors that foster individual and collective resistance, this documentary can catalyze fruitful discussions on race, gender, class, social inequities, power, and social and political activism. #Bars4Justice is relevant to a wide range of fields, including African American studies, criminal justice, sociology, women’s and gender studies, communications, and sociology." - Cassandra D. Chaney, Films for the Feminist Classroom
