Ballerinas Kennedy George, 14, left, and Ava Holloway, 14, pose in front of a monument of Confederate general Robert E. Lee. They told me the dance community is about joy and collaboration and they were out today to do just that. “We’re moving forward,” George said. . . . @reuters . #rva #blacklivesmatter #blackgirlsdance

Other things we don’t do in America: Call Nazis “very fine people,” refuse to rent to POC, mock the disabled, grab women by the pussy, take out a full-page ad in the @nytimes saying the death penalty should be reinstated for the Central Park 5 who were Black & 15/16 years old & spent 11 years in prison before DNA proved they were innocent. But here we are. #FuckTrump #DumpTrump

"SAY HER NAME 💔 TAKE ACTION. In honor of Breonna Taylor’s 27th birthday today, we are calling for justice to be served.⠀ ⠀ Breonna was an essential worker murdered at the height of a pandemic in her HOME. She was killed by police with a barrage of bullets that struck her atleast 8 times.⠀ ⠀ They were executing a no-knock warrant for another suspect that was already in their custody. The FBI finally opened an investigation into her shooting today, but no officers have been arrested, charged, or even disciplined yet.⠀ ⠀ When we say #blacklivesmatter, that must include Black women & Black LGBTQ+ lives, too. Use your voice for them just like you did for #GeorgeFloyd. Donate, protest, petition and DEMAND #JusticeforBreonnaTaylor.⠀ ⠀ __________⠀ ⠀ QUEENS IN SLIDE 1:⠀ @essiegolden @curvenvy @glamazondiaries @amarachiukachu @tyalexander @colormecourtney @chardlinechanel @addieohh @stylishcurves @ontheqtrain @kurvykatie @lexiwiththecurls @iambeauticurve @simplygailg @styleandpoise @dressupwithjess⠀ ⠀ QUEENS IN SLIDE 2:⠀ @gabifresh @kellyaugustineb @chanteburkett @alana_reina @simplycurvee @opalbyopal @audreypatriciaw @stylenbeautydoc @monroesteele @blairimani @fromheadtocurve @enigivensunday"⠀ ⠀ #breonnataylor #sayhername #birthdayforbreonna

D.C. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser renamed a street in front of the White House “Black Lives Matter Plaza” and had the slogan painted on the asphalt in massive yellow letters, a pointed salvo in her escalating dispute with President Trump over control of D.C. streets.⁠ ⁠ City officials said the actions Friday were meant to honor demonstrators who are urging changes in law enforcement practices after the killing of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, in the custody of Minneapolis police.⁠ ⁠ “There was a dispute this week about whose street it is, and Mayor Bowser wanted to make it abundantly clear whose street it is and honor the peaceful demonstrators who assembled Monday night,” said John Falcicchio, the mayor’s chief of staff.⁠ ⁠ Read more at the link in our bio.
