#ItsBeenAYear Anniversary March marks movement's spark in Atlanta


? Marking the one-year anniversary of the inaugural march led by It's Bigger Than You in the days following Michael Brown's fatal shooting by Ferguson police, Atlanta activists affiliated with the Black Lives Matter movement returned Tuesday evening to the CNN Center where over 5,000 people gathered last year. Despite numbers well below that and persistent rain similar to the downpour that drenched them in the same spot last year, activists came rife with dedication and devotion. Felicia Christian, mother of Alexia Christian who was killed April 30 while in the custody of Atlanta police, was along for the entirety of the march, providing a voice for not only her daughter but other families coping with similar situations. A common chant throughout the march stemmed from the Janelle Monáe-headed Wondaland Arts track "Hell You Talmbout" as activists exclaimed for onlookers, and even police, to say the names of the numerous victims of police brutality.

  The Easter Bunny came bearing gifts in the form of New York City rappers Le1f and Junglepussy. Khalif Diouf, better known as Le1f, brought the New York QTPOC scene's energy to Purgatory at Masquerade on March 27. Riding the wave with him was fellow rapper Junglepussy. Despite the rain and Easter Sunday slot, both sets exuded copious amounts of energy in the somewhat cramped but fitting space.
  
  I like this photograph because of the way in which motion was captured.  From Le1f's facial expression to his flailing braids, so many elements aid in this sense of kinecticism. The purple lighting is a additional touch I like. I saw the steady purple light as a perfect accent to his performance. 
  
  This was actually at the height of a more solemn song. I believe the sudden outburst/shift in tone caught some audience members off guard. 
  
  I was standing (mostly crouching) at the very front of the stage.  Seeing as Purgatory is such a confined space, there's no room for a photo/press pit. In order to not be the annoying tall guy that blocks the majority of the show, I crouched most of the show, only popping up when I saw a shot that called for it. This is one of those shots.

With a chaotic energy that was somewhat reminiscent of New York City’s no wave acts of the late 1970s and early ’80s, Emily retained Spalding’s musical heft while leaving room for some fray around the edges. Part live concert and part performance theater, Emily touched on various social and political issues at such a breakneck pace that they may have been lost on many in the crowd at Terminal West. Everyone in the room stood in awe of the transformation unfolding on stage. In one brief yet poignant moment, she fell to her knees in a prayer-like position after breaking glasses strewn atop her piano. As she knelt, a sample of the recent church bell memorial held in Charleston, Emanuel AME played bringing sharp gravitas to the character’s actions. Vignettes such as this happened between songs, and came across as feverish manifestations of subjects pushing against the walls of Spalding’s mind, with the only mechanism of release being Emily.
