Solidarity with #BlackLivesMatter
LatinoNation stands in solidarity with #BlackLivesMatter. This week we will not share content that reflects the Latino community. Instead, we share stories that illuminate the injustices and struggles of the Black experience. For those that ask, "Don't all lives matter?", we urge you learn about the movement and its origins. We need to face the U.S’ uncomfortable history and acknowledge that our systems and institutions are built upon white supremacy. Only then can it be dismantled.
Throughout the past several months we have shared stories about the the #BlackLivesMatter movement, its origin after the murder of Trayvon Martin, (Truth and Power: #BlackLivesMAtter) as well as stories that critique anti-blackness in sectors of our own US Latino community and across the Americas. (Nana Dijo, Too Black For Brazil).
Through all recent tragedies, we remain committed to our brothers and sisters— #BlackLivesMatter.
Peace and Love,
