Have I Ever Told You Black Lives Matter?

  • Have I told you that we have never, ever accepted that Black lives don’t matter? Not Frederick, Harriet, Sojourner, Martin, Rosa, Malcolm, or Nelson? We have always known and you must remember that Black lives matter. W. E. B. knew that Black lives matter. He preached about Black equality and liberation and would be standing shoulder-to-shoulder with us today. Have I ever told you that? Have I told you that we have long been world-acclaimed poets and authors—Zora, Richard, Langston, James, Ralph, Maya, Toni, Ta-Nehisi, and so many others—affirming with powerful voices that Black lives matter? Have I ever told you that?
