Black and white retro style music video where young African - American boy was murdered and the woman carried his body through neighborhood

by Eva

It’s a black and white music video I saw a few years ago on vevo.

The plot is that a young African - American boy was murdered in, I guess, predominantly white community. He was the victim of lynching in around 1970s. The woman (mother or a relative) was carrying his body through the neighborhood. It was both physically and mentally difficult thing for her to do.

The body was heavy but the pain of loss was even heavier. She carried his body herself, I believe, to show the white people what they have done to him. Or at least what they didn’t mind happening. Many witnesses were feeezed on the spot and just followed her with the gaze not trying to stop her.
