Source: GoFundMe. If you can set aside a few dollars for Avreeayl Ra, please do so. The story of what happened is below. I have nothing to add aside from sympathy and frustration.
On August 13 at 4AM, Avreeayl Ra, Chicago master drummer / percussionist, and dear friend was leaving the historic Green Mill Cocktail Lounge and he headed to his usual parking lot, one block away. A group of white males followed behind him, and yelled racial slurs. They hit him with something, leaving him unconscious. Some time later, Avreeayl woke up face down on the concrete.
