#BlackLivesMatter and Our Very Short Memories about What It Takes to Advance Racial Justice

Before BlackLivesMatter, the Civil Rights movement disrupted and transformed America. Learn about the fight for voting rights June 23rd at the Lansdowne HRC movie night

There’s no denying that Black Lives Matter wants to disrupt the status quo, and that will make some people angry, but we are surprised at some of the voices we hear, who should know better than to think a movement will always be comfortable for the public.
