This is a video I saw on Youtube and I think it is really effective on demonstrating how African American think about Black Lives Matter. In the video, she talks about how people are truly feeling regarding of Black Lives Matter and All Lives Matter, why they are saying specifically “black lives matter”. She clearly demonstrates the reasons using examples of brutality and specific charts and data. I found this really impressive and effective on thinking the movements in a relatively rational and detailed way.

    Thanks for sharing! I think that it’s really important to listen to the view point of black lives matter from the black lives that are at stake. Getting caught up in mainstream coverage that is mediated by white folks can be really easy, and it is really important to be reminded about why this cause is still so important.

    This is a great video. One thing I always think about when I see these videos is how important it is for us to educate ourselves about the BLM movement. It’s easy to watch videos, but even harder to appreciate the people and activists who are seeking to educate others.
