*Teyana Taylor channels Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Trayvon Martin, Elijah McClain and the mother of Emmitt Till in the poignant video for her new song, “Still.”
Taylor also directs the clip, which mixes real footage from Civil Rights marches, Black Panther demonstrations and Black Lives Matter protests with images of the singer dressed as the aforementioned notable figures who have either died or been affected by police killings. There are also shots of her dressed as Black Panther co-founder Huey Newton and late civil rights figure Malcolm X.
Malcolm X’s voice begins the video before names of recent Black and brown victims of police violence fil the screen in rapid succession.
Taylor sings: “I keep crying for love/ But it won’t wipe, won’t wipe my tears.”
The video ends with a black screen and the voice of Floyd calling out for his deceased mother.
