Black Lives Matter is a movement that actively campaigns against policy brutality, racial inequality, and racial profiling perpetuated towards Black people. With the brutal death of George Floyd, this movement has seen surging support with citizens, from as many as 13 countries, marching in solidarity with US protestors. Celebrities too have raised their voices and backed up the movement with donations to bail funds and legal aid for those participating in these protests.
