Live Free or Die becomes an Anthem of our Time
Creatives are calling for us to reflect on what matters and is important to us
Creators all over the globe have been calling out for justice and change during these times of struggle.
They are willing to fight for it by risking infection from Covid 19 in order to peacefully protest and educate the public globally.
There have been so many movements defining 2020.
Black Lives Matter (BLM) is a decentralized political and social movement advocating for non-violent civil disobedience in protest against incidents of police brutality and all racially motivated violence against black people. Black Lives Matter is an activist movement which began as a hashtag (#BlackLivesMatter) after George Zimmerman was acquitted in the shooting death of Trayvon.
Other acts of violence that have continued to push this movement forward are George Floyds death (2020) killed in police custody.
Since 2014, other high-profile deaths include Tamir Rice (2014), Laquan McDonald (2014), John Crawford (2014) Freddie Gray (2015), Walter Scott (2015), Alton Sterling (2016), Philando Castile (2016), Terence Crutcher (2016), Antwon Rose (2018) and others. Black women and girls are also targets of police violence, a reality that sparked the “Say Her Name” movement to highlight how this violence often goes unnoticed.
Women who have died as a result of police interactions include Sandra Bland (2015), Deborah Danner (2016), Atatiana Jefferson (2019) and Breonna Taylor (2020).
It’s especially inspiring to see music creators of our time joining in with songs of protest.
One creator who struck me with her new single was a Colorado native, Jules Schroeder.
Her song ‘Judgement Day’ has sent chills down my spine and inspired me to reflect on what 2020 has meant to not only my generation but all generations.
The song is becoming an anthem for freedom.
Calling for us to reflect on what matters and important to us, to use our voice, and actively create the life we want.
