Notes: I really wasn't planning to make this vid--as a white person without a particularly strong connection to the movement I am incredibly underqualified to comment. But the amount of negative coverage of BLM out there is really upsetting, and I thought I could at least help tip the scale slightly in the other direction. Whenever possible the clips used are of protests relating to the person whose name is being said. The historical footage used during the Emmett Till section shows Civil Rights Movement protests and marches which occurred after his murder, but not as a direct response to it. Again, I am very open to criticism. Please let me know if I did something wrong!
