The Seven Last Words of the Unarmed contains seven movements, each of which quotes the last words of an unarmed Black man before he was killed. Thompson has said that in composing the piece, he "used the liturgical format in Haydn's The Seven Last Words of Christ in an effort to humanize these men and to reckon with [his] identity as a black man in this country in relation to this specific scourge of police brutality." Thompson was also inspired by the illustrations of Iranian-American artist Shirin Barghi.

The work was premiered in November 2015 by the University of Michigan Men's Glee Club under the direction of Eugene Rogers.  We hope to see at this powerful presentation of Joel Thompson's work.
