Say His Name: Darren Seals

You may write me down in history with your bitter, twisted lies,

You may trod me in the very dirt,

But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

Mother Angelou

Rest In Power,

Darren “King D” Seals

We go harder now. Black lives matter.darren848484.jpgdarrenseals999

ST. LOUIS––Darren Seals, a well-known activist from Missouri who led week-long protests in Ferguson following the police murder of 18-year-old Mike Brown, was murdered on September 6, 2016.

According to police reports, the St. Louis police were called to a vehicle fire in the Riverside area of St. Louis just before 2 a.m. on Tuesday. When the fire was extinguished, they found Darren’s body inside the vehicle with a gunshot to his head.

Darren was threatened by police

There are a lot of missing details of this case.

Some are speculating that he was murdered by the State, which is not an unfair assessment to make, especially since Darren was threatened by police back in July.
