The world is not black and white, but we all deserve chances to lead a life humbled not broken by our choices. We are funding his legal aid, because he was accused of a felony.

Brenden’s name is Brenden, but we call him Big Fella ‘Fella for short The story goes, he came out the womb - and his dad said, That’s one big ol’ fella He’s always wanted to be a mechanic Fella likes cars cus they amaze him, he loves how everything is connected he might ignore you as he plays NBA 2k17 he loves babies he Will ignore you as he plays Madden ‘17 he is a student at UAB, his favorite snacks are pop tarts and snickers he graduated with a 3.5 advanced diploma but more importantly his favorite color is red his zodiac sign is a Pisces, so he’s real chill and dreamy his favorite thing to do is talk to his girlfriend she studies to be a nurse he still mourns Aundre he has a 3.0 as an Engineering major but most importantly He is human and it is not fair, He is his mother and father’s baby He belongs to all of us And his future belongs to him.

My brother Brenden was falsely accused of Felony murder. He was hanging out with a friend, and they eventually joined another group of people in Hueytown where a confrontation went wrong between his friend and the victim that unfortunately led to a life being taken. However we know that the criminal justice system has a history of targeting black men, and we ask for your help to fight against this charge. We ask you to think about the plans we make for our futures, and how being from certain environments limit your probability of being seen as human. What does it mean for black peoples to be in the wrong place at the wrong time? And what about my brother's plans? We are fighting to clear his name. We are funding his legal aid, for his lawyer and we ask that you do what you can. Anything would help even a $1. And please, please spread the word.
