Potent minimalist art sends a strong message about police and vigilante brutality in America

Journalist and artist Shirin Barghi has created a gripping, thought-provoking series of graphics that not only examines racial prejudice in today’s America, but also captures the sense of humanity that often gets lost in news coverage. Titled “Last Words,” the graphics illustrate the last recorded words by Brown and other young black people — Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant and others — who have been killed by police in recent years.

Let us not forget their voices

things girls do that I love:

  • offer their friends sips of their coffee drinks without being asked

Marine conservationists often view fisheries as an enemy of sorts, vacuuming up fish with little thought to the long-term consequences and using equipment that also ends up killing other species, i.e. bycatch like sea turtles and marine birds. However, Joanna Alfaro Shigueto, the President of the Peruvian NGO ProDelphinus and winner of a 2012 Whitley Award, has chosen a different tact. Off the coast of Peru, she works closely with artisanal fishermen to lessen their bycatch and improve their lives through education.  “Many of the fishermen that we work with are the first to say that fish stocks in the Peruvian ocean have decreased,” she told mongabay.com. “Regardless, fishermen are uninformed of the degree of vulnerability each species has or how their actions affect the oceans when we consider how many artisanal fishermen work along the Peruvian coast.
