Running Head: BLACK LIVES MATTER10.T. (Producer), & Birdsong, M. (Director). (n.d.).(2016).An Interview with the foundersof Black Lives Matter[Video file]. Retrieved fromwith_the_founders_of_black_lives_matter/detailsI chose this video because the founders of the Black Lives Matter movement are the ones beinginterviewed. This is the best way to get truthful information in how the movement went aboutand its true meaning and purpose. Alicia Garza, one of the founders says, “Black Lives Matter isour called action. It is a tool to reimagine a world where black people are free to exist, free tolive, and a tool for allies to show up for us”. (Garza, 2016). This is a powerful statement to provethe purpose of the movement. Cullors, another founder says, “The reality is race forms on aspectrum from black to white. Doesn’t mean if you are in between you don’t experience racismbut if you are closer to white on the spectrum the better off you are and the closer to black youare on that spectrum the worse you are.” This is an important quote for my argument. Manypeople do not understand racism or do not believe that it exists. This interview helps prove that itis very much alive. I found this source on.9
