On November 12, 2007, Miami-Dade police shot and killed two unarmed Black men, surrounded by police while in an SUV facing a dead end. As Frisco Blackwood attempted to put the vehicle in park- following police orders- the car lurched slightly and police opened fire, killing him and Michael Knight and injuring a female passenger in the back seat.
The killings capped a 19 day span during which Miami-Dade police killed four (4) unarmed Black men, including BG Beaugris, a 19 year old shot and killed just yards from his front door while walking home with friends from doing his father's laundry, and Roger Brown, kicked and beaten on NW 79th St. after suffering a mental health crisis.
Join your community in honoring the lives lost to police violence on the one year anniversary of Frisco and Mike's death.
The vigil will be held on Wednesday, November 12, 2008, at 6:00pm, at the location of their death, on the corner of 65th St. and North Miami Ave. in the Little Haiti section of Miami.
Justice for Frisco and Mike! Justice for victims of police violence!
