Sidney Dawson Jr. discusses and reflects on the death of his younger brother, James Dawson, while in police custody in November 2000.


He highlights family healing, intergenerational trauma, and collective memory as his kids remember the life and death of their uncle. James’ organs were illegally removed from his body making it nearly impossible to determine the cause of death.
