On January 1, New Year's Day 2014, community members gathered in the evening at Bikes 4 Life in Oakland to mark five years since Oscar Grant was murdered by BART police officer Johannes Mehserle on the Fruitvale station platform. Before a standing-room-only crowd, a panel moderated by Tony Coleman and featuring Cat Brooks, Dan Siegel, Nigel Bryson, and Minister Keith Muhammad examined various aspects of the Justice for Oscar Grant Movement, its legacy, and how it continues to shape current events in Oakland.
