On September 20, 2015, Edward “Prohaize” Minta began running and cycling from the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, GA to Liberty Island in New York City, on a mission to connect with local communities along the way to discuss how an increased implementation of police body cameras can facilitate greater transparency between police officers and civilians.
After 20 grueling days, the musician-turned-activist successfully trekked over 750 miles and completed his journey to the Statue of Liberty in New York City.
