#BlackLivesMatter. They always have, and they always will, contrary to what the world has told us.
The Black Lives Matter movement has come at an opportune time to commemorate this year’s Black History Month. The year 2014 was pivotal for the development and advancement of black voices in the public arena. Race has been on the minds of media outlets, pundits and everyday citizens due to the extrajudicial killing of several unarmed, innocent young black people.
