What can you do to resist the world that actively seeks to extinguish the beauty and diversity of black life? In what ways can you affirm that Black Lives Matter?
We continue, in Thirty Seconds or Less, to interrogate the systems that perpetuate racism. We ask how we can transform our knowledge that #BlackLivesMatter into a lived reality in our nation.
Now More Than Ever by Kenji Kuramitsu:
"People of every cultural background need affirm, now more than ever, that Black Lives Matter."
Black by Jacqui Lewis:
"Black love is critical. Black intelligence is life changing. Black passion moves the world."
We Can Do This by Jacqui Lewis:
"We must grieve the loss of all of the fallen; African Americans killed at the hands of the police and police killed while protecting protesters."
A First Step Toward Healing by Brian McLaren:
"Those who conceal their sins won’t prosper, the Bible says, but those who confess and renounce them find mercy. When white Americans affirm that black lives matter, we are taking a first step toward healing."
As Long As It Takes by Jim Kast-Keat:
"How long? How long will we march for justice? How long will we proclaim that Black Lives Matter? How long, oh Lord?"
