What is Black Lives Matter? What does it mean and what is it about? Today we’re going to answer these questions.
The Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement is a grassroots campaign to try and fix the problem of police unjustly killing black people in America. It began in earnest in 2014 after Michael Brown, a black teen, was killed in Ferguson, Missouri, by police. He was unarmed at the time, and his death sparked outrage across America because it was so blatantly unlawful – giving rise to a movement that was born from the minds of three people: Opal Tometi, Alicia Garza and Patrisse Cullors.
