I got to meet two of my heroes today, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, who have endured immense pain to share, their son, Trayvon Martin’s story with us. Even through tragedy their strength and resilience never wavered. Trayvon’s spirit is with us as the fight continues.✊🏾

Make sure you tune in tonight! #TeamTrayvon17 #RestInPowerTrayvon #ParamountNetwork #BET

What, to the American slave, is your 4th of July? I answer: a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciations of tyrants, brass fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade, and solemnity, are, to him, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy — a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages. There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices, more shocking and bloody, than are the people of these United States, at this very hour. Go where you may, search where you will, roam through all the monarchies and despotisms of the old world, travel through South America, search out every abuse, and when you have found the last, lay your facts by the side of the everyday practices of this nation, and you will say with me, that, for revolting barbarity and shameless hypocrisy, America reigns without a rival. - Frederick Douglass

“Our love is not an individualized love—it is a collective love. A collective love that is constantly combating collective forms of racialized hate. Chattel slavery, Jim Crow, New Jim Crow, massive plantations, mass incarcerations, slave patrols, police patrols, we as a collective, since the colonization of the Americas have been combating collective forms of systemic racialized hate and oppression. But I am hopeful. I am inspired. This is why we have to protest. This is why we are so passionate. We protest because we love ourselves, and our people.” Full speech in bio. @amnesty @yourrightscamp @ravisionmedia

“As police officers continue to terrorize Black and brown communities, abusing their power, and then hiding behind their blue wall of silence, and laws that allow for them to kill us with virtual impunity, I have realized that our love, that sometimes manifests as Black-rage, is a beautiful form of defiance against a system that seeks to suppress our humanity--A system that wants us to hate ourselves. But I remind you, that love is at the root of our resistance. It is our love for 12-year-old Tamir Rice, who was gunned down by the police in less than two seconds that will not allow us to bury our anger. It is our love for Philando Castille, who was executed in front of his partner and his daughter, that keeps the people fighting back. It is our love for Stephon Clark, who was lynched in his grandma’s backyard that will not allow us to stop until we achieve liberation for our people.” Full speech in bio. @amnesty @yourrightscamp @ravisionmedia

“It was James Baldwin who said, to be Black in America, “and to be relatively conscious is to be in a rage almost all the time.” My question is, why aren’t all people? How can you stand for the national anthem of a nation that preaches and propagates, “freedom and justice for all,” that is so unjust to so many of the people living there? How can you not be in rage when you know that you are always at risk of death in the streets or enslavement in the prison system? How can you willingly be blind to the truth of systemic racialized injustice?” Full speech in bio. @amnesty @yourrightscamp @ravisionmedia #AmbassadorOfConscience

“That word courage is exactly the word I would use to describe Colin. It was a courageous act to begin a protest on systemic oppression by himself. We all know that there is safety in numbers but Colin didn’t recruit numbers to protect himself; he peacefully and quietly set out on his own.”-Eric Reid @e_reid35 I admire your courage as well, we are in this together! Full speech in bio. @amnesty @yourrightscamp @ravisionmedia #AmbassadorOfConscience

“It’s ironic that the stand Colin and I took was not to stand at all, but it was to take a knee. Colin didn’t kneel in protest of a song or a symbolic piece of fabric, but he knelt to bring awareness to the human rights still being denied to people of color. He didn’t kneel because he is anti-America, but because he believes America should be held to the standard that it has written on paper; that we are all created equal.” - Eric Reid @e_reid35 Full speech in bio. @amnesty @yourrightscamp @ravisionmedia #AmbassadorOfConscience

I couldn’t ask for a better Brother @e_reid35 to share this journey and @amnesty Ambassador of Conscious award with! WE keep going strong!✊🏾 📸: @karlfergusonjr @jaidybaby Marieke Wijntjes

“Seeking the truth, finding the truth, telling the truth and living the truth has been, and always will be what guides my actions.” @amnesty @yourrightscamp @ravisionmedia

“I would like to thank Amnesty International for The Ambassador of Conscience Award. But in truth, this is an award that I share with all of the countless people throughout the world combating the human rights violations of police officers, and their uses of oppressive and excessive force.” @amnesty @yourrightscamp @ravisionmedia #KnowYourRights 📸: @karlfergusonjr

Great to hear my brother @realcoleworld share his brilliance with the world! Here’s a throwback for you to enjoy. Man we have come a long way! ✊🏾
