HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — You might have noticed a blank black image flooding your timeline on social media today.
It was #BlackoutTuesday. The movement was launched from the music industry in solidarity for justice following the death of George Floyd.
This means musicians put a pause on business such as music streams, and YouTube streams for the day. This movement also urges people to buy from Black and Brown businesses.
"We've got to make a concerted and intentional effort to move past racism, discrimination, biasness, and let's just be one family," says Christian Hip-Hop artist Frederick Whitlow II.
The next black out date is July 7th.
