Watch these dancers honor black lives lost with colorful paint & stirring choreography

They move within their home before braving the outside.

"Graphic..."

"Murder..."

"New look at the video showing a deadly officer-involved shooting..."

"Body cam and dash cam video of an officer-involved shooting an unarmed black teenager..."

These are just pieces of the reports from news anchors that society has grown accustomed, but not numb, to over recent years and they are the ones that movement artists Jon Boogz and Lil Buck hear before deciding to turn the television off in their new video, "Color of Reality."

In the clip, the two men -- fully body-painted by artist Alexa Meade -- emotionally react without words, but through dance instead, first in the confines of their living room before building up the bravery to step outside into the world. They fearfully and curiously interact with their neighbors before the video comes to emotional end.
