The Ways Black Lives Matter to Black People

@ Zoom Meeting Session

November 4, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The founders of the Black Lives Matter Movement remind us that Black people continue to be targets for intentional and systematic racism and demise. These realities challenge the community to focus closely on the Black Lives Matter mantra, which expresses self-love, inspires a sense of social justice, and sends an energizing message fueling the fight for its overall health, stability, and humanity. To fully understand the Black Lives mantra, it is beneficial to open up a conversation concerning the ways Black lives matter to Black people. A discussion focused on “Mattering” is important for understanding how it looks and what it means when Black people strive to embrace each other and articulate their value as people during the COVID-19 pandemic.
