About the Black Lives Matter Movement

From the official website of the Black Lives Matter movement, the movement is "broadening the conversation around state violence to include all of the ways in which Black people are intentionally left powerless at the hands of the state.  We are talking about the ways in which Black lives are deprived of our basic human rights and dignity."
