On Jan 19, 2016, The University of Michigan’s Male Glee Club sang Joel Thompson’s new choral work “The Seven Last Words of the Unarmed” — Kenneth Chamberlain, “Officers why do you have your guns out?”; Trayvon Martin, “What are you following me for?”; Amadou Diallo, “Mom, I’m going to college.”; Michael Brown, “I don’t have a gun! STOP!”; Oscar Grant, “You shot me!”; John Crawford, “It’s not real”; Eric Garner, “I can’t breathe.”
