Jinho’s Journey

February 4, 2021
A man split by duality. Half of his body is in a hoodie on a stage. The other half is dressed in a police officer's uniform.

A hip hop artist from Oakland leaves his mic behind to join the police force and fight for justice from the inside.

This story includes scenes of police violence and strong language, sensitive listeners please be advised.
