The Blackout Tuesday movement was created by two women named Jamila Thomas and Brianna Agyemang as a day to reflect on what has transpired over the past week and more.
“In response to the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and countless other black citizens at the hands of the police,” read the movement’s website. “#TheShowMustBePaused is an initiative created by two black women in music in observance in the long-standing racism and inequality that exists from the boardroom to the boulevard. We will not continue to conduct business as usual without regard for Black live.”
The website also contains links to help aid the victims and their families as well as links to help support the many protestors, and provides multiple ways the help educate and showing how you can help the cause.
