"If All Lives Matter, Then Why Are We Here?"
Presented by Oscar Holmes IV, Ph.D.
The brutal killing of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer on May 25, 2020 resulted in worldwide #BlackLivesMatter protests and renewed calls for robust police reform and eliminating systemic racism. Similar to the swift backlash that occurred with previous protests, a large segment of Americans still refuse to acknowledge the presence and pain of systemic racism and injustices and proudly retort #AllLivesMatter. Despite this divide, several organizations released statements in support of #BlackLivesMatter, but few of them ever go beyond this point, which is indicative of performative activism and allyship. This talk will explore the themes that undergird the #BlackLivesMatter Movement and offer some ideas to help people move from a performative activism and allyship to authentic activism and allyship.
