This is some powerful stuff.
If you’ve been paying attention to national news lately, then you’re aware that America is currently suffering from an increase in black deaths at the hands of police.
While victims like Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, Sandra Bland, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, and Trayvon Martin may never get justice at this rate, Alicia Keys is done with seeing her brothers and sisters gunned down by people who are supposed to be there to help.
That’s why the singer teamed up with Mic.com to create #23Ways, a public service announcement that highlights just some of the ways black people can be killed on a daily basis.
But Alicia couldn’t just do this alone… she recruited help from Beyonc├â┬⌐, Rihanna, Chris Rock, Taraji P. Henson, Pink, Janelle Mon├â┬íe, Pharrell, Common, Rosario Dawson, Queen Latifah, Kevin Hart, Lenny Kravitz, Zo├â┬½ Kravitz, Jada Pinkett Smith, Bono, Jennifer Hudson, Adam Levine, A$AP Rocky, Chance the Rapper, Talib Kweli, Swizz Beatz, Van Jones, and Tracee Ellis Ross to make this the most star-powered PSA possible!
Ch-ch-check out 23 of the ways you can be killed in America for simply being black (below)!!!
Black Lives Matter. Period.
