"I can hear my brother crying, "I can't breathe," now I'm in this struggle, and I can't leave"
The family of 43-year-old Eric Garner released a song titled “I can’t breathe” in response to the recent and ongoing police killings of Black men.
The title of the song comes from the cry of Eric Garner when he was choked to death by NYPD officers on July 17, 2014.
Garner’s sister Ellisha sings encouraging words of hope, “I can hear my brother crying, “I can’t breathe,” now I’m in this struggle, and I can’t leave” and Brother Steven Flagg raps on the track. The family’s “I can’t breathe” song is similar to Samuel L. Jackson’s in 2014.
The family’s song is now available for purchase on apple music and iTunes, and will be available on all music platforms by July16. “The song is dedicated to the struggle everyone is going through.”
Another group of hip-hop artists, such as Talib Kweli and KRS-One, also released a song with the same “I Can’t Breathe” title in response to the recent police brutal killings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile. The group encouraged other artists to also join the fight against police violence.
