On 17th July 2014, Eric Garner was killed in a clash with police near Staten Island ferry terminal. News of his death would quickly go viral, highlighting ongoing issues surrounding police brutality and racial profiling.
A year on, and public radio station WYNC have teamed up with SHoP Architects to ask the question: what do you think when you hear the name Eric Garner?
Using a portable payphone called The TalkBox, people are invited to share their thoughts, which will then feature on air and on their twitter feed.
An incredibly bittersweet idea, both giving a voice to dangerously underrepresented communities, and proving that not only is it good to talk, it’s vital.
