The Story of Gilbert Barber
In light of the recent killing of Jonathan Ferrell (RIP September 14, 2013), a 24 year old former football player with Florida A&M University, the parents of Gilbert Barber likened their experience to “deja vu,” due to the eery similarities between Ferrell’s case and their son’s. In a 10 minute interview, Jessie Barber discusses the details of her son’s case and shares what she feels must be done in order to put an end to police brutality.
The parents of Gilbert Barber would like to get in touch with the Ferrell family to offer words and support. Anyone who is in touch with the Ferrell family, please contact us so we can make this vital connection.
The film is a part of a long-term documentary series called, “The Forced Trajectory Project,” by ACD Media, which follows and documents the paths of the family members who have lost their loved ones to police brutality.
