Many people don’t feel like there’s much to celebrate this year especially when it comes to America! How can we celebrate the life of a Country that doesn’t celebrate black lives? There has been numerous people and activist that have called for change and a lack of celebration on this 4th with a #BlackOutDay. #BlackOutDay is a nationwide campaign that aims to use economic power to support the Black community if you remember rapper T.I called for the black out following the death of George Floyd which was set to take place on July 7th but it’s being kicked off a little early!
Stephen Jackson who has called for change and justice since his brother George Floyd was killed by the hands of police has also chimed in on this black out day. Stephen posted a message on Instagram and said “This 4th of July we’re not wearing red, white, and blue. We’re wearing all black.”
Are you blacking out this 4th of July?
