This is my second large Flash movie, and second submission to Newgrounds. The animation is based upon the Marlene Nourbese Philip poem "Blackman Dead". I've always been really interested in black history, so this poem really spoke to me. The music is by Sigur Ros, from their album "( )".

**It's a pretty big file and it will probably lag on most computers, so please set your quality to medium or low.

I hope you guys enjoy it!

I think that it is well done.

I am not one for too much controversy though, but as far as the movie goes it is moving. It relays messages that some are afraid to tell.

Worth Watching!

This is very unique style of a flash film.

I just saw this, as I am reviewing the March submissions for my vote, and I just had to commend you for making such a great flash.

The animation and art were awesome, I particularly enjoyed the color scheme which added so much to the mood of the piece. The music was very well chosen and perfectly captured the somber tone as well.

The voice work was a little harsh, I will admit, but wasn't intollerable or anything, I didn't think it detracted too much from the overall appeal.

Well done, and I have to applaud you for dealing with a delicate and sadly persistant issue in such a thoughtful and sensitive way.

I hope to see more great submissions in the future from you.

I have two things to say...

1. You did an amazing job, I loved it.

2. Tank7699 is an ignorant asshole.
