Alicia Keys put together an eye-opening video highlighting 23 normal activities that victims of police shootings were engaged in before their death.

Athletes opened the ESPYs on Wednesday night with a powerful PSA on racial incidents within the community:

Queen Latifah raised awareness for the movement with an incredibly empowering speech at the Hip Hop Honors Awards 2016 – opened by #BlackLivesMatter founders Alicia Garza and Darnell Moore. 


'We all know that the world and our world is really tense right now. It's a lot of tension. It's a lot of angst. It's a lot of hurt. A lot of pain. I'm hoping that we can somehow manage to channel all of these emotions that we have in a positive way and really do something to change our world,' she said. 

'I don't care how much money or things I have, or Puff has, or Missy has, the ladies have, if I go outside and try to hail a cab and he passes me for the white woman standing right there – that racism is still alive and kicking. And we have to change that. And I'm not blaming the white lady, she needed a cab too. I'm just saying we gotta change this attitude.'
